Our writers think Illinois bounces back against Northwestern

Ron Johnson-USA TODAY Sports We see the Illini ending the regular season on a high note. Ethan Holesha: Illinois 42, Northwestern 7 Illinois is coming off of three straight losses so this will be a big frustration win. Northwestern has been horrendous all year and will be dominated by the Illini. Look for massive games from Tommy Devito and Chase Brown. Matt Rejc: Illinois 38, Northwestern 10 Only horrible turnover luck or another bizarre weather day could make this a competitive game.

Illinois’ defensive secondary is RIDICULOUS

Photo by Steve Nurenberg/Icon Sportswire via Illinois has some stars in their defensive backfield. This Illinois team refuses to rest. Fresh off a bye week, the 17th-ranked Illini went into Lincoln and came away with their sixth straight win. After a shaky start, Illinois allowed just one Nebraska first down in the final 40 minutes of game action to cruise to another Big Ten West victory. So many things have gone right for Illinois this season that have been discussed at length. Tommy DeVito continues to play with poise and confidence at the quarterback position. Chase...
