“Looking to pick up its first major conference win of the year, Illinois wasn’t able to squeak out a win on the road. The Illini had all the opportunities in the world to secure the victory, but they continue to shoot themselves in the foot.
A six-minute stretch where Notre Dame extended its lead to 11 was enough for the Fighting Irish to come out on top. This was the first of a tough four-game stretch for the Illini, and it was essential to get things off on the right foot. But Illinois will have to wait to pick up its first marquee win of the season.”
