Illinois’ 2019 season has been an adventurous one. The Fighting Illini were 2-4 through their first six games of the season and then followed that up with four straight wins.
Illinois was at 6-4 before losing to Iowa last week, making the Illini a 6-5 team. With six wins, the team is already bowl eligible. Yet, one week remains.
On Saturday, at noon ET at Illinois’ Memorial Stadium, the team will face Northwestern to close the regular season. It is the final game at home for the seniors.
On Friday, Illinois dropped a “Senior Day” trailer for the Northwestern game:

No matter how the game goes, the Illinois seniors will remember it forever. Again, it will be their last games at home. For some, it will be their second-to-last game of their playing careers.
The Illinois-Northwestern game will be televised on FS1.
