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

7–0 NU

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 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 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
