After leaving the game early against Purdue last week due to an injury suffered from a late hit, it appears that Illinois quarterback Wes Lunt will be inactive and Chayce Crouch will get the start.

Crouch came in against the Boilermakers and provided a fairly balanced attack for the Illini offense. He completed 10-of-14 passes for 142 yards and rushed for 137 yards and two TDs on 17 carries.

This will be the first start of Crouch’s career.
