The Wyoming Cowboys and Illinois Fighting Illini meet up in Week 0 at Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m. ET and the game will air on the Big Ten Network. The Cowboys are coming off a 6-6 season, 2-6 in the Mountain West. The Illini finished with a 5-7 record, and 4-5 in the Big Ten.
Wyoming’s last appearance ended with a handsome 52-38 Idaho Potato Bowl win over Kent State. They hope to build off that momentum in their first game to start the year. This is the perfect time for defense to take control, while offenses roam to find some semblance of identity. Illinois could be falling on the wrong end of the spectrum in this matchup, but the line has moved heavily in their favor in the days before kickoff.
Illinois is a 14-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and -560 on the moneyline. That makes Wyoming a +430 moneyline underdog, with the point total set at 43.
