its anyones division to win, crazy that nebraska with a win tonite could be tied for the lead in the west division.....Bielema is a good coach. He knows this league. I had a hunch he’d get Illinois going. His stint at Arkie just wasn’t a good fit. Illinois could win the West?
someone got off a garbage 6rd run in the last minute of the game. it was 2 yrds.....
Who was it who beat them? I forgot.It still says 2 yards rushing on the ESPN and Yahoo box scores.
This is what I wrote in another thread:
Get this: Wisconsin has TWO total yards rushing today. That may very well be the lowest ever rushing output for the Badgers -- at least in several decades. Even in getting hammered by Ohio State, the Badgers had 192 yards rushing. Wisconsin's stud RB, Allen, had 8 carries for 2 yards against Illinois (against OSU, he had 165 yards and a TD).
The Illinois defense looks like the real deal. They came into today top 5 nationally in both total defense and scoring defense -- that'll hold up after today.
In Illinois' four wins, they've allowed 19 total points (less than 5 per game). That's 1 TD and 4 FGs total in four games.
Meanwhile, Chase Brown (Ill RB) came into today as the nation's leading rusher. He had 129 yards at a TD against Wisconsin this afternoon.
