Wisconsin Badgers vs. Illinois Fighting Illini: Game Thread

The Badgers will look to bounce back with a win over Illinois on Saturday.

The Wisconsin Badgers are heading into Week 8 with a matchup against the Illinois Fighting Illini at Memorial Stadium, with kickoff slated for 2:30 P.M.

The Badgers, who stand at 4-2 heading into the game, are 2.5-point favorites heading into the game.

Meanwhile, the Illini enter the game at 3-4, fresh off a 27-24 upset victory over Maryland, and will look to spoil redshirt freshman Braedyn Locke’s first career start with the Badgers.

Wisconsin comes into this game with history on its mind, as the Badgers are looking to avenge their 34-10 loss from last season that ultimately led to the firing of head coach Paul Chryst.

Can the Badgers pull off the win this time around?
