CHAMPAIGN -- Seeing football players isn't the only fun part of going to an Illini game. The Marching Illini is always a great show.

This year, it's the biggest it's ever been with more than 350-members. Friday they practiced for hours in Memorial Stadium.

This year there are three new drum majors leading the pack. For one of them, wearing the hat and shoes is a dream come true.

Band member say they're ready for the heat. Saturday, they'll take extra water breaks, but with the adrenaline of the first game, they probably won't even notice.
