NU Foe Illinois Not Generating Many Big Plays

If the Huskers football team has had an Achilles’ heel this season, it’s the fact their defense has given up a bunch of big plays. That would not seem to be as much of a worry for the Blackshirts this Saturday at Illinois.

In four games this season, the Illini offense has a total of four plays of 30 yards or more – last in the Big Ten. The Illini do have one experienced deep threat in receiver Geronimo Allison.

Kickoff Saturday is set for 2:30 p.m. The pre-game begins at 9:30 a.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK and will be joined at 2 o’clock on KLIR 101.
