Illinois is heading on the road to face Iowa this weekend. The Illini are 4-6 on the season and 3-4 in B1G play.

The Illini have a chance to become bowl eligible in Bret Bielema’s first season under the helm. They will have to win their next 2 games against – No. 17 Iowa and Northwestern – to reach bowl eligibility.

Illinois will be without Bielema this weekend due to testing positive for COVID-19. You can read the full story here.

Heading into the weekend, the Illini released a hype video before their B1G West clash with the Hawkeyes. You can watch the video down below:

The video encapsulates the Illini having the next man-up mentality for this weekend’s game with the Hawkeyes.

Iowa is still in the thick of the B1G West race, although the Hawkeyes need help from its rivals if the Hawkeyes want to get to Indianapolis. Wisconsin has the head to head, and they both have identical B1G records.

Iowa is 8-2 on the year, and 5-2 in B1G play this season. At one point, the Hawkeyes were ranked as high as No. 2 in the land.

Illinois and Iowa kick-off at 2:00 ET on FS1.
