Beckman sees improvement in O-Line

The Illinois football team is looking for one Big Ten win - anything to snap that 20-game conference losing streak. They will have their best chance yet Saturday at Purdue. One key for Illinois, though, will be keeping Nathan Scheelhaase on his feet.
CHAMPAIGN -- The Illinois football team is looking for one Big Ten win - anything to snap that 20-game conference losing streak.  They will have their best chance yet Saturday at Purdue.  One key for Illinois, though, will be keeping Nathan Scheelhaase on his feet.

The Illini have allowed the fourth-most sacks in the Big Ten, including six of them last Saturday against Ohio State.

"We gave up too many sacks, no question about that," said Beckman.  "But to play against the likes that they've played against this year in the way Ohio State's playing defense, the way Michigan State's playing defense, and now Wisconson - I think they really stepped up their game.  You can see a remarkable difference."
