Illinois Fighting Illini at Northwestern Wildcats

Saturday November 20, 2010 3:30 PM EST

Line: Illinois -8

This game is being played at Wrigley field, and in a weird turn of events the teams will only be playing towards one end zone for safety. Illinois has lost 2 straight. Northwestern is fresh off a big win over Iowa last week 21-17.

Stats to consider:

Illinois Fighting Illini:

  • Illinois is 5-5 with a 3-4 Big Ten record.
  • Points against per game: 23.9 (52nd)
  • Points for per game: 31.4 (38th)
  • Passing yards a game: 160 (105th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 207.1 (20th)

Northwestern Wildcats:

  • Northwestern is 7-3 with a 3-3 Big Ten record.
  • Points against per game: 21.4 (36th)
  • Points for per game: 25.5 (78th)
  • Passing yards a game: 265.3 (27th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 145.4 (74th)

What to watch for:

  • Illinois Junior RB Mikel Leshoure has 1,041 yards and 11 TDs this season. He has rushed for 7 TDs his last 3 games. Leshoure also has 164 receiving yards and 3 TDs.
  • Northwestern will be without Junior QB Dan Persa. Persa threw for 2,581 yards 15 TDs and 4 Ints. He also rushed for 519 yards and 9 TDs to lead the team.

Every sports pick revolves around the health of the players. Northwestern took a huge hit when QB Dan Persa went down for season. This is basically a home game for Illinois and they will come out and get the victory baring a stud backup QB for Northwestern. I like what Illinois brings on offense and defense into this one.
