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 is coming off a a much needed bye week and will play arguably their weakest opponent this season. Miami (OH) has only scored three touchdowns all season and were shut out in their last game against the Cincinnati Bearcats. The Fighting Illini should have no problem beating the RedHawks today, but the teams still need to play the game. However, Illini fans can still expect Nathan Scheelhaase to return to form in this game.
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.
If you can’t make it to the game in person, this is the place to be.
