Ohio State leads the all-time series against Illinois, 67-30-4. This game is considered a rivalry, as the two schools battle for Illibuck, a wooden turtle.
The Buckeyes have won the last eight meetings against the Illini. However, the last time OSU lost Illibuck was in 2007 at home.
Illinois is the last game standing in the way before Michigan. The game time for ‘The Game’ has already been scheduled for a noon kick—and will be broadcast on Fox.
