All of a sudden, Illinois a big game

  It may not be a battle of two top ten teams, but in many ways Penn State’s game Saturday at Illinois is Big Game No. 1 of the Bill O’Brien era. Before the season started many thought that the games at Virginia and at Illinois would go a long way in determining how good this Nittany Lion team would be.

Hopes are higher as Lions head into conference play
