Illinois drops highlight-filled hype video ahead of showdown with No. 3 Michigan
Illinois released a hype video Friday to get fans ready for a big game against No. 3 Michigan on Saturday.
The video featured some motivational words from coaches as well as some highlights from the season.
The Fighting Illini hope the video can spark some much needed hype for both players and fans as they take on Michigan in the Big House.
Illinois, which has put together a solid 7-3 season, heads into the game as a 17.5 point underdog. ESPN’s Football Power Index gives Illinois just a 9.3% chance to come out of Saturday with a win.
If Illinois can pull out a win, it would likely eliminate any College Football Playoff hopes for the Wolverines. It would also give Illinois a leg up in chasing the B1G West title.
Michigan has dominated Illinois, winning 71 of 96 meetings. The Wolverines have also won the last 5 meetings dating back to 2010.
The Wolverines and Fighting Illini kickoff at noon ET on Saturday.
