The Cincinnati Bearcats romped over Purdue last week and head to Champaign looking for their second win of the season. If the Bearcats are to go to 2-0 they will need to get past an Illinois team who threw the ball effectively against Southern Illinois last week.
Saturday’s game will take place at Memorial Stadium and air on ESPN2 and WatchESPN at 12:00 pm.
Cincinnati is an 8 point favorite after opening the week as a 10.5 point favorite. The over/under has dropped to 54 total points after opening at 58.
Will Cincinnati leave Illinois apologizing for poor play or will the Illini knock off the Bearcats as they prepare for a schedule which currently has three top 25 teams in four weeks?
