The Illinois Fighting Illini will hit the road for the first time this season as they're set to take on the Washington Huskies in Seattle. This rematch of last year's Soldier Field game should be one of the more entertaining games of the weekend. The combination of Illinois' passing game and Washington's ground attack should equate to a high-scoring affair between these two undefeated teams. Will the defenses be able to keep up? We'll find out soon enough.
Now, there's a bit of a problem with the game airing on FOX--a baseball game was scheduled for the noon slot. The network only allocated 3 hours for the New York-Baltimore game, which means it's very likely it won't finish on time. According to the athletic department, if (when) the baseball game runs long the local markets will be taken to the football game while the rest of the country starts on Fox Sports 2.
