A couple Big Ten football analysts called Illinois linebacker Milo Eifler’s play against Akron the best defensive performance from anyone in the conference during Week 1. Eifler didn’t stuff the stat sheet, but the Zips certainly felt his impact in the form of big hits.
On Tuesday, Illinois football released a highlight video of Eifler’s biggest hits from Week 1, but hilariously included some funny reaction memes in the story too.

With those two hits, Eifler has officially put the rest of the Big Ten on notice.
Illinois will take on UConn this Saturday, and those Huskies, who actually matched their 2018 win total of one in a Week 1 victory, better block Eifler, or Illinois will be releasing another one of these videos next week.
