The weekend in Illinois concludes with a 7 pm showdown against Southern for the second of three games in a non-MTE, MTE. The goal for tonight is to get off to a better start than Friday. Illinois won against Valparaiso, but trailing by 10 at halftime was not part of the plan. This season, it has been a trend against mid-major opponents. We’ll see what happens as beat writer Scott Richey covers the game and provides updates throughout the night. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow him on Twitter (@srrichey).
