The Illini are playing to finish 5-7 and have a punchers chance at landing in a bowl game - but they must beat Northwestern.
We do have winners in the first annual IlliniGuys Prediction count. The winners are Kedric Prince (IlliniGuys Director of Recruiting and host of Ked's Recruiting Roundup), Steve Sturm (author of the Trench Report and many of the Football Recruiting Spotlights), and Shannon Denny (the talent behind the IlliniGuys Instagram account).
Bringing up the rear due to his eternal Illini optimism is Kirkland Chappell (author of some of the Football Recruiting Spotlights). Larry and Mike graciously thank you for helping them avoid a last place finish.
Let's see how the predictions turn out. One last time (unless a bowl game is on the itinerary) for fans to see if any of the IlliniGuys staff has a crystal ball that works when it comes to the Illini football predictions.
