Illinois vs Iowa

Pre Game

Illinois' signature win this season is against Penn State, but unfortunately it was during Penn State's slide to the bottom. Iowa, like Penn State, has been a one hill roller coaster, but with an extra bump in week 9. Iowa is already bowl eligible, but has less of a chance than Purdue at winning the West Division.
TeamRivalry.com Pick: Illinois 7 / Iowa 28

Post Game

Illinois put up a good fight, but in the end it wasn't enough. Iowa fights forward with a "never quit" spirit.
