OK Illini fans, this week's game VS the awful, and I do mean awful Wisconsin Badgers is a must win if we want Illinois to go to a decent bowl. A win this week would not only put Illinois at 5-3 but, put them in a position to finish 8-4 or 7-5 and maybe receive an Outback Bowl or possibly an Alamo bowl bid. However, a loss to Bucky this week (who is an awful awful team, see last week's embarassing loss to Iowa) could put Illinois in danger of finishing 6-6 and being either left out all together or going to the Motor City Bowl which after the Rose Bowl last year would be a huge drop off! After losing to a team with half it's talent at home 2 weeks ago (Minnesota) this is a BIG GAME, need to pull out a road win!
