At worst, Illinois will be tied for second in the Big Ten after tonight. If Purdue can beat Michigan State (minus Kalin Lucas) tonight, then Illinois will be in a 3-way tie for first place in the conference at 9-3.
The Fightin’ Illini had a HUGE win at Wisky tonight. The game was Wisky’s first time losing to an unranked B10 team at home during the Bo Ryan era - that’s impressive. However, I would bet that Illinois becomes ranked now.
Thoughts? I didn’t get to watch the game.
