What Happened The Last Time These Teams Played?

Aug. 28, 2021: Illinois 30, Nebraska 22

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — A new era beckons. And this one looks different.

After a decade of (mostly) misery for Illinois Football, the debut of head coach Bret Bielema gave Illini nation plenty to cheer about Saturday afternoon in a 30-22 win over Nebraska.

The Illini, now back-to-back winners against the Cornhuskers (0-1, 0-1 Big Ten) for the first time in nearly a century, withstood the loss of a starting quarterback, a missed field goal, and hot weather to open both the Big Ten and college football season with a victory on the national stage.
