There are 60,670 seats at Memorial Stadium. Every home game, Illini faithful fill the stands to be part of the “home game” experience. They hi-five with fellow fans when it goes right and console each other when it goes wrong. For the rest of us not in attendance, we do it virtually. Here. Welcome to the Illinois Fighting Illini Live Game Thread.
Illinois will play arguably their biggest non-conference game of the season today as the Illini host the #19 Washington Huskies at Soldier Field for the Chicago Homecoming game. Illinois is 2-0 and looks to continue their surprising start to the season by surpassing their win total from a year ago. Also, even those the players not might be thinking about it, a win over #19 Washington would most likely push the Fighting Illin into the AP Top 25.
For those of us watching at home, we have the Live Thread. Discuss every play, in real time, as it happens with your favorite Writing Illini writers and fellow Illini fans.
