The #17 Illinois Fighting Illini and Nebraska Cornhuskers meet up in Week 9 at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on ESPN. The Fighting Illini are in the driver’s seat for a spot in the Big Ten title game and will look to keep things rolling on the road Saturday afternoon.

Illinois (6-1, 3-1 Big Ten) is coming out of the bye week and knocked off the Minnesota Golden Gophers 26-14 at home as Chase Brown carried the ball 41 times for 180 yards, and the Illini defense allowed more than 14 points just once all season. Nebraska (3-4, 2-2 Big Ten) also had the week off and lost to the Purdue Boilermakers 43-37 despite Casey Thompson threw for 354 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Georgia is a 22.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and -2400 on the moneyline. That makes Florida a +1200 moneyline underdog, with the point total set at 56.5.
