CFB | Illinois 20 @ Indiana 23 | 09/03 | 12:00 AM UTC
ANALYSIS: The Illini are a perfect representation of what coach Bret Bielema wants in a program. They run the ball, play defense and are efficient in the passing game. That's more than enough to control the tempo of the game against an Indiana team that finished last in the Big Ten in scoring defense. The Hoosiers were the darling of college football during the COVID-19 year, but it's insane to let that leftover narrative linger into the 2022 season. The Hoosiers don't have a quarterback who can consistently move the chains like they did back then.
