We have reached week 11 of the college football season, and most teams are now playing in the conference portion of their schedule.
In this one it’s a Big Ten showdown at Memorial Stadium.
The Indiana Hoosiers make the trip to Champaign to take on the Illinois Fighting Illini. Indiana has won the last two games played between the two teams, but the last match up was in 2013.
The Indiana Hoosiers have had a disappointing season coming into this game with only three wins. Now most of the losses they have been able to keep pretty close, but at some point moral victories aren’t enough and people start wanting actual wins.
In their last game it was the worst game of the season though. Against the Wisconsin Badgers the defense really struggled and that led to a 45-17 defeat.
The Hoosiers come into this game having lost four games in a row, and although they have kept most games close they haven’t covered a spread in their last six games.
The strength of this Hoosiers team is on the offensive side of the ball. They come into this game averaging 25.9 points per game.
Freshman quarterback Peyton Ramsey has played pretty well for the most part this season. He has thrown for 1252 yards, ten touchdowns, and five interceptions.
Five interceptions seems like a lot, but he is young and this experience is going to go a long ways for the future of this program.
Illinois Fighting Illini
On the other side of this match up is the Illinois Fighting Illini who have also had a disappointing season, but they haven’t found many moral victories out of this season.
After winning the first two games of the season, they have lost seven straight games, and only covered the spread in two of those losses.
The biggest issue the Fighting Illini have had has been the fact they don’t have a quarterback who has been consistent.
Jeff George Jr. has gotten the most action so far this year, but in the last game against Purdue he only threw for 11 yards.
Freshman Cam Thomas was the one who got most of the work throwing for 159 yards.
Going forward I would expect Thomas will be the one getting the most snaps. At this point they mine as well play for the future, and Thomas has at least shown glimpses that he can have a place in the future of this program.

They have more stability at the quarterback position, and I think that will be the difference in this game. They will win this game, and also cover the spread.
