What’s Going To Happen

The first one to ten points wins?

That’s not exactly fair. Illinois can score here and there – coming up with 31 points or more six times – and Cal has had a few bursts. However, the Cal defense is better at keeping games under control the way it wants to, the offense won’t give away the turnovers that Illinois desperately has to have, and the lines will play a little bit better.

There won’t be anything remotely pretty about this.



Illinois will make a few more mistakes – and that includes a few more penalties – and Cal will do a better job in the field position battle.

The Bears aren’t going to screw up like Illinois will need them to. Illinois will keep this close and have plenty of chances, but it won’t be able to bust through.
