Fans support Illini

CHAMPAIGN -- If you were anywhere near Memorial Stadium Saturday, you were surrounded by orange and blue. Thousands of people flooded the streets for the Illini's 102nd Homecoming game.

It's safe to say the team isn't having the best year, but fans we talked to say they're sticking with them win or lose.

"The atmosphere, the victories, along with a couple of losses. We take the good with the bad. We've been coming for 30 years, we love it," said fan Mark Villings.

Fans will have another chance to cheer on the Illini next weekend at Ohio State.
