CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Despite it being listed as an individual statistic, Illinois is considering the fact that Chase Brown is currently the nation’s leading rusher as a team ordeal. 

For the first time in a decade, the Illini program has one of the nation’s best running back numbers in terms of Brown’s yards (604) and yards per game (151).
