#4 Minnesota 31-21 (13-8) vs #5 Illinois 34-17 (14-10)
12:05pm Central, Big Ten Network
Yes, the Illini get Minnesota for the second time in three days and the fifth time in the last week. However, unlike Wednesday's game, the Illini cannot lose this time. Not if they want to win the Big Ten.
Of course, winning the conference won't be easy because if the Illini do beat Minnesota this afternoon they then have to turn around and face Nebraska about an hour after the Minnesota game concludes.
So the Illini need to win twice today.
Here's the updated bracket.
