On Saturday afternoon, head coach Tim Beckman and the Illinois Fighting Illini football team will take to the field for their annual spring game as they get set to make a run in the Big Ten Conference in 2014.
Last year was a whirlwind for Beckman and the Illini. They finished the season just 4-8 overall and 1-7 in the conference. Things looked to be on the rise in the second game of the year when they dismantled Cincinnati, but the wheel fell completely off when they hit the Big Ten slate.
However, this is a new season, and they should have a new quarterback at the helm in the form of Oklahoma State transfer Wes Lunt, who chose to come back to his home state after deciding to leave the Cowboys last offseason.
Here’s how you can watch all of the action live on Saturday:
Date: April 12
