Lovie and the Fighting Illini come to town
Revenge is a dish best served cold. So we served Illinois up a cold plate of ass whoopin'
A is for answer. Each week we ask some questions about the upcoming game. A few days later we check back to see if we got answers. Today, we look back at the Fighting Illini. Yes, really. We must.

This was stated by Mike Riley on the Big Ten Teleconference call just now.
You knew that Mike Riley was going to end up on this list this week. But Texas, Ole Miss, Georgia, Michigan State fans and a bunch of clueless referees have to get a mention as well. Who's the worst?
How would you grade the Huskers for their performance against Illinois? And should the word "hot seat" replace "honeymoon" when referring to Mike Riley?
The sun comes up. The takes come as well. Here's what was said after the Huskers last-second loss.
The Huskers lose another heartbreaker as Illinois scores the go-ahead touchdown with 10 seconds left in the game.
Nebraska's Devine Ozigbo scored his first career touchdown and Drew Brown connected on a 39-yard field goal.
The @Huskers are on the board! Watch Devine Ozigbo take it 19 yards to the house. http://t.co/mwPhIr8R8a— Nebraska on BTN (@NebraskaOnBTN) October 3, 2015

Huskers lead on the road thanks to this tote.
We're having fun on the CN game thread today as Nebraska will crush Illinois and we will all enjoy it together!
The CN staff talks Huskers/Illini along with other big-time games this week.
Everything you need to know to watch Saturday's game between the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Illinois Fighting Illini.
Nebraska has had its share of struggles this season. There is reason to believe that those struggles could continue, which could lead to an Illinois victory on Saturday.
We asked our friends at SBNation's Illinois site, The Champaign Room, to talk about what kind of Fighting Illini team is going to take on the Huskers Saturday.
Q is for question. Every week we ask questions about the upcoming opponent. A few days after the game, we check back to see if we got answers. This week, the Fighting Illini have our attention.
Optimism! We have it here for you!
#Huskers vs Illinois is being pushed to a 3pm CT start time to make room for Michigan vs Maryland at 11am CT due to Hurricane Joaquin.— Nebraska Huskers (@Huskers) October 1, 2015

Due to the impending storm, Mich/Maryland have to move their game. This means the Huskers and Illini move theirs due to both being on the Big Ten Network
Injuries have hampered Illinois' passing attack, forcing the Illini to turn to unproven sophomores and freshmen at receiver. Is this a "get well" game for either Illinois' receivers or Nebraska's secondary?
