Illini Host Ranked Huskies Today

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - Even though Illinois and No. 19 Washington are both coming off big wins it isn't clear yet how good either is.

Illinois coach Tim Beckman says it's too early to be sure what the hot start for the Illini (2-0) means. Illinois beat Cincinnati last weekend, taking over the game in a way that quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase says the team hasn't in a long time.

Washington quarterback Keith Price says his team faces a tough road test Saturday in Chicago after beating Boise State at home. The Huskies haven't won on the road outside the Pac -12 since 2007.
