The Buckeyes take on Illinois and look to bounce back from their loss at home to Michigan.

Bradley Leeb-USA TODAY Sports

With only six games left before the regular season ends, Ohio State (19-6, 6-6 in the Big Ten) is looking to finish strong down this final stretch, starting at Illinois (14-11, 3-9). After a 10-point loss to Michigan in their previous outing in which Ohio State at one point led by double digits themselves, the Buckeyes will try to get back on track against the Illini, a team which OSU defeated in their last meeting, 62-55.

Both Ohio State and Illinois are struggling on the offensive side of the ball, the Buckeyes shooting 45% from the field and the Illini shooting 41%. The Illini are much tougher at home this season than on the road, as they've posted a 9-4 record in Champaign, but just 2-6 when they are the away team. The same could be said for the Buckeyes, as Ohio State has only managed a 4-3 mark on the road.

Illinois has lost eight of 10 in the series but has beaten the Buckeyes at home in each of the past two seasons, so there's no doubt that Ohio State will get everything they can handle and more against the Illini.
