Personal foul: Illinois trolls Nebraska on social media after blowout win in Lincoln
After Illinois trounced Nebraska 41-23 earlier today, the Fighting Illini’s official Twitter account sent out a tweet hilariously trolling the Cornhuskers.
In what has become a weekly tradition in the B1G, the Illini decided to jump in.
“Good game Nebraska,” the tweet read. “Thanks for bring back B1G football.”
Good game Nebraska. Thanks for bringing back B1G football.

For those that aren’t aware, Nebraska was one of the schools that lobbied for the Big Ten to have the season in the Fall. Their season obviously isn’t going well though as their loss today dropped them to 1-3.
Illinois got their starting quarterback in Brandon Peters back in the lineup today and it looked like he didn’t miss a beat. He finished 18/25 for 205 yards and had a touchdown pass.
Next up for Illinois is a date with Ohio State next Saturday. For Nebraska, they’ll get Iowa next Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. ET.
