Illinois (2-4) will travel to face No. 14 Northwestern (5-1) in its regular season finale.

Illinois dropped an awesome hype video in advance of the matchup.

Whew. That one is sure to give Illinois fans chills.

Illinois has struggled this season but an upset victory against Northwestern would at least give them a positive ending.

Illinois is coming off a 35-21 loss against No. 16 Iowa. Illinois’ two victories came in back-to-back weeks at Rutgers and Nebraska.

After this game, Northwestern will square off with No. 4 Ohio State (5-0) in the B1G title game. Northwestern’s game last week at Minnesota was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. Northwestern’s last game was a 29-20 loss at Michigan State.

Illinois leads the all-time series 55-53-5 but Northwestern has won the last five matchups. Regardless of Saturday’s outcome, the Wildcats have locked up a spot in the B1G Championship Game on Dec. 19 against Ohio State.
