13. Illinois (2-3)
Last week: 13. Not everything was terrible in Illinois’ latest loss. The Illini scored two defensive touchdowns, after all. But considering they produced only 17 points, there is serious cause for concern. Quarterback Brandon Peters was injured and the offense cratered. With Michigan coming to town brandishing a revitalized defense, the end zone could prove to be foreign territory for Illinois once again.
Next up: vs. Michigan, noon Saturday, ABC.
