This is an important game for the Illini.
It's important because they're facing a marquee opponent and have a chance to improve to 3-0 on the season.
It's important because it's being played in Chicago, and there isn't anything better than the Illini going to Chicago and playing in front of a larger crowd than "Chicago's Big Ten Team" does in its own home games.
It's important because, a win in this game let's the rest of the country know that this team is for real.
So we might as well win the fucking thing.
