Those are some epic threads.
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 is coming off a 35-21 loss against No. 16 Iowa.
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.
