Illinois moves venue of Western Michigan game in 2016 to Memorial Stadium

KALAMAZOO – Illinois has changed the location of its game against Western Michigan in 2016.

Illinois was scheduled to visit WMU on Sept. 17, 2016, but it will now host the Broncos at Memorial Stadium.

A source inside WMU confirmed with me Thursday that the Broncos will receive a large payout, a guarantee and a buyout from Illinois.

The hard number of the payout hasn’t been made public.

Illinois recently hosted WMU in 2011 and 2012 and won both matchups.
