The road to the Big Ten Championship game in Indianapolis begins at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln today.
At least, the Huskers hope so as they welcome in the Fighting Illini of Illinois...
So let's go to the Big Ten opener for both teams and the 11AM kickoff.
Huskers vs. Illinois
Tommy Armstrong getting the start for the second straight week
That's because this man ...still out with turf toe
First meeting between these two schools in nearly 30 years!
Ameer had a great day a career high 225 yards rushing...and it started right from the get go
Cuts it outside ...look at the moves
All the way to the two
And then ...he'd finish it off himself
Illinois on offense... Donovan young...fumbles it ...LeRoy Alexander
There to scoop it up ...big turnover for the blackshirts
And they would make it stand
Tommy ...to QUincy ...his 6th TD of the season
Huskers up 14–0
Up 17 to 3 now ...Feed Imani!!!
TD puts the Huskers up 23–3 ....extra point no good
Now we said Imani had a big day ...case in point
3rd quarter ...on the pitch from Armstrong
Ameer ...what a run ...43 yards to the house
His second TD of the day
Puts big red up 30 to 5
Illinois would finally break through later in the quarter
Donovan Young punches it in from a yard out
Blackshirts ...looked improve today
How about Jason Ankrah ...the pick off the deflection
Heck of an effort by the defensive end
Setting up ....this
Maybe the catch of the season so far
Kenny Bell ...with the one handed grab ...takes it all the way to the hut
37 yard score ....36–12
