For the first time since Bill Clinton was committing adultery in the Oval Office, the Fighting Illini, which has to be a worse choice for a name than Steve Kerr naming his son Nick, will face off against Virginia in Illinois’ third game of the second and Virginia’s second. Illinois is 2-0 against Virginia all-time, but with more than twenty years since a meeting, that record has just about as much influence on the game as white women of Twitter do on the political climate of our country – none whatsoever.
Saturday won’t be an easy game. Both teams have strong offenses, but with starting quarterback Brandon Peters injured in Illinois’ first game of the season, a defense that has raised some serious concerns, and having to travel into Virginia’s home turf are all pointing toward a close win for Virginia, who are favored in the game after a big win last week against Richmond, 34-17. If you bet $1 on the Virginia vs. Illinois game and win your long shot bet, you’ll also win a free $500 from Sports Illustrated.
