First half is over here on SR. day in Champaign. It took just about 57 minutes it felt, well it took longer but the feeling of how long it took was very short. It’s 10 to 7 in favor of Northwestern.
The Illini are off to a very slow start. They have only had 5 drives in the first half to the Wildcats 5. Here are how the drives have gone for the Illini in the first half,
The Illini have to stop all of the rushing attempts that the Wildcats have. They are running the ball all over the field and it’s working. Stop the run in the second half and with how the field is drying out(the rain has stopped) we might see some more passes. But, as of right now, it’s a ground game.
The only Illini TD came from a Dre Brown 6 yard TD run in the first quarter. I will have a more in-depth post after the game, as well as a pod that will be on the schedule for tonight.
