The Illinois Fighting Illini’s road game against the Illinois State Redbirds has been cancelled. The game was suppose to take place on Wednesday, March 27th at 4:00 p.m. (CST), but was cancelled due to snow in the Normal, Illinois area. The game will not be rescheduled.
The Fighting Illini have now had three games impacted by the weather this season. Both of their games against the Missouri Tigers slated for March 20th were cancelled due to the weather in St. Louis, Missouri. They also had the semifinal, consolation, and championship games of the Fighting Illini Invitational cancelled as well.
Illinois was looking to bounce back on Wednesday from being swept in their last series. The Fighting Illini were swept by the Wisconsin Badgers in their first Big Ten series of the season. The Illinois State team in which they were scheduled to play on Wednesday hadn’t played since March 10th, 2013. Now, they will need to wait until March 29th to try to bounced back.
The next time the Fighting Illini will take the field will be on March 29th against the #24 Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Cornhuskers will come into their series against Illinois riding 9-1 record in their last ten games.
