Ohio State will be seeking its second Big Ten Conference win in as many tries on Sunday evening as they take on the Illinois Fighting Illini at home in the Schott.
The Buckeyes are coming off of a 15-point victory against Minnesota this past Wednesday, where we saw a 20-point effort by Marc Loving, and a passing clinic by freshman JaQuan Lyle. A win against the Illini would give the Buckeye six consecutive victories.
Coming to Columbus, the Fighting Illini are 8-6 on the season, and lost their first Big Ten Conference game against the Michigan Wolverines 78-68 in Champaign, snapping their own five-game winning streak. The majority of the games that they have played have been close, and if the way the Buckeyes have been playing recently is any indication, this is a very winnable game for the Bucks.
