Chris ‘The Bear’ Fallica explained why he would be taking Illinois plus the spread on Thursday morning’s edition of Always College Football.

The analyst said he likely wouldn’t be watching the game, which is very fair.

“I might take Illinois, I don’t want to watch the game,” Fallica said. “Iowa is terrible, I mean I was laughing at the Bill Connelly spin of box scores that he always tweets out and you can find a lot of information in there, you look and he has the 20+ air yard pass attempt percentage and it was Iowa, 0.0. They don’t even try to throw the ball.”

Illinois is a sneaky good team this year, though. Chase Brown is one of the best running backs in college football and Tommy DeVito is proving he can move the offense well enough to win games. The Fighting Illini have lost just once this season.
