Illinois enters its second season under head coach Bret Bielema with a bunch of new faces entering the program. It will also be the first chance for fans to get a look at new offensive coordinator Barry Lunney Jr.
Lunney came over from UTSA after beating the Illini in Champaign last season, 37-30. He served on Bielema’s staff at Arkansas as a tight ends coach before making the jump over to UTSA a few years ago.
