Illinois looks to keep bowl hopes alive against Northwestern

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Illinois must beat a struggling, determined Northwestern team at home on Saturday to keep alive the slimmest of hopes for a bowl bid.

If Illinois (4-7, 3-5 Big Ten) can beat Northwestern (3-8, 1-7) and other things fall into place, the Illini could find themselves in their second bowl appearance in the five past years. First-year coach Bret Bielema said he would welcome the 15 extra practices allowed along with a bowl trip.

"I think that anything we can do to give us a chance to practice, I'm all for it," he said. "I just think it's invaluable. The only way to get good at football is to play football. During our bye weeks, some of the things that you've seen, the progression that we've made through the course of the year is through practice. To be able to do that again would be a no-brainer."
