Either the Rutgers Scarlet Knights or the Illinois Fighting Illini will break their losing streak as the two struggling programs face-off against one another this Saturday.

Rutgers enter the game on a two game skid and Illinois is on a three game losing streak.

While some may think this will be a boring game, it may actually turn out to be a good one. And BTN’s Tom Dienhart gives you the low down on what you need to know about this matchup. Here are the four storylines for the game:

  • The offense lives
  • B1G Blues
  • The streak lives
  • Where’s the offense


Kickoff is set for noon ET and will be televised on BTN.
