After a slow start to the season, Illinois has now won back-to-back games over Rutgers and Nebraska.
Quarterback Brandon Peters returned in the win over the Huskers, completing 18-0f-25 passes for 205 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for a score in his first game action since the season-opener.
Running backs Mike Epstein and Chase Brown are capable of controlling the clock. Both backs cleared 100 yards vs. the Huskers and scored touchdowns. Epstein and Brown managed 8.7 and 4.2 yards per carry, respectively.
As for the Buckeyes, they remain one of the most dangerous teams in the country. Justin Fields had his first bad game of the season last week, so he’ll likely be looking for a rebound performance vs. the Illini.
Kick off is at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday.
