ESPN's FPI predicts Illinois' non-conference battle with Chattanooga
Illinois non-conference matchup with Chattanooga should be an easy win, according to ESPN’s FPI.
ESPN’s FPI gives the Fighting Illini a 95.4% chance to win the game.
Illinois comes into the game fresh off a bye week after starting the season 2-1. Illinois already has a big win over Virginia, but dropped its game to Indiana, which has gotten off to a 3-0 start.
Following the game against Chattanooga, Illinois gets into the brunt of B1G play, taking on Wisconsin, Iowa and Minnesota in consecutive weeks.
The Mocs are off to a 3-0 start and looking for a big upset on Thursday. Chattanooga has made a name for itself in the Southern Conference over the last few years, and a win over a Power 5 school would be huge.
The Fighting Illini take on the Mocs Thursday at 8:30 p.m. ET.
