Tommy DeVito has quietly been one of Illinois’ stars on the offensive side of the ball. PFF revealed where his quarterback grade ranked among the B1G and in the nation.

DeVito is leading all B1G QBs in quarterback grade after Week 7. He is also third in the nation.

DeVito has 1,415 yards passing with 14 total touchdowns and just 2 interceptions this season for the Fighting Illini. The Syracuse transfer has fit into Bret Bielema’s offense almost perfectly. DeVito and Chase Brown have been a tough one, two punch to handle.

He is one of the main reasons that Illinois has a 6-1 record.

Can Illinois ride DeVito’s and Brown’s hot hands all the way to a division title? There are just five games remaining on its schedule. Illinois has to face Nebraska, Michigan State, Purdue, Michigan, and Northwestern in that order to end the regular season.

Illinois plays Nebraska after the bye week on Oct. 29 at 3:30 p.m. ET. A channel for the game hasn’t been announced just yet.
