Nebraska 22 @ Illinois 30 | 08/28 | 5:20 PM UTC

Illinois +7

WIN

ANALYSIS: Perhaps the worst loss of Nebraska head coach Scott Frost’s playing or coaching career was last season getting beaten 41-23 by Illinois in Lincoln. Most of those same Illini players are back, including their four best defensive players who came back as fifth-year seniors. Sixth-year senior QB Brandon Peters is also back. He led the balanced attack with an offense committing no turnovers in their big win. It's a new coaching staff (Bret Bielema as head coach) with Illinois, new optimism in home opener.
