As if a last-second field goal against a MAC team to open the season wasn’t enough adversity, here’s some more for the Illini.
Illinois will head to Lawrence on Friday as a 3-point underdog vs. Kansas.

This isn’t a surprise considering the game is being played at KU’s Memorial Stadium and the Jayhawks are expected to have starting QB Jalon Daniels making his season debut.
The Illini were 9-point favorites vs. Toledo, but didn’t cover that spread, winning only by 2.
Kickoff is Friday night at 6:30 CT.
