Illini calling IU game a must-win

The Illinois football players are calling Saturday's game at Indiana a must-win. They understand what is at stake. Illinois has to win 3 of their last 4 games to become bowl eligible, and with undefeated Ohio State still on the schedule, that makes this game against the Hoosiers that much more important.
CHAMPAIGN -- The Illinois football players are calling Saturday's game at Indiana a must-win.  They understand what is at stake.  Illinois has to win 3 of their last 4 games to become bowl eligible, and with undefeated Ohio State still on the schedule, that makes this game against the Hoosiers that much more important.

The key will be for Illinois' defense to get some stops.  They took a step in the right direction at Penn State last week, but this Indiana offense is hard to stop.  In fact the Hoosiers have scored 28 or more points in nine straight games.

"This is a game we have to get," said linebacker Jonathan Brown.  "Our ultimate goal is to get to a bowl game, so we understand the situation.  We have to get this one, and we're going to work like it."

Illinois and Indiana kick off at 2:30 pm CT Saturday.  The game will be televised on BTN.
