There are 3 D1 inrta-Illinois foot ball games this year however , only 1 of those is at FBS level. Northern plays Western, Illinois plays State, and, of course the overrated Northwester VS. Illinois towards the end of the season. there is a look at each FBS team's record in IL , and analysis:
Northern Illinois (1-0): They are playing the week 2 game against Western Illinois, any easy win, although the Leathernecks could still have a good season.
Illinois (1-1): Illinois has the game against ISU and then the B10 rivalry. ISU shouldn't be too much to chew, an easy victory. Northwestern should repeat in the Big 10 rivalry, with a 27-10 win last year.
Northwestern (1-0): Northwestern has it easy in Illinois this, not playing the team from Dekalb. Northwestern has a game at Champaign, but will disappoint the crowd.
