CHAMPAIGN -- The Illinois football team will try to crank up the heat on defense when they host Wisconsin Saturday night.  Illinois is last in the Big Ten in takeaways and last in sacking the opposing quarterback.  They say they're going to have to pressure the Badgers if they want to come out with a win.

"We want to be more aggressive - bring the attack to them, and make them play off what we're doing," said linebacker Mason Monheim.  "That's what I'm hoping we're going to do - just be more aggressive, play on their line of scrimmage, and force them to make adjustments."

Illinois and Wisconsin kick off at 7:00 pm Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.  The game will be televised on BTN.
