GameThread: Illinois vs. Michigan State

Could today be the day the Big Ten losing streak ends?

Trevor Ruszkowksi-USA TODAY Spor

We now interrupt your weekend of stalking every move Cliff Alexander makes to remind you that we have a football game this afternoon. And Cliff Alexander will probably be at it for a while! So now you have to watch!

Seriously, it's Homecoming and the Illini are facing a team that's good, but also imperfect. We could see a possible upset this afternoon, and a win today would go a long way in helping this team get to a bowl game this year.

So join us in the comments where we can discuss what we see. And Cliff Alexander too. Though hopefully we'll be too excited by what we see on the field to talk about Alexander.

If you haven't read our preview for today's game, why not do so now?

Time: 2:30pm Central
Line: Michigan State -8.5
