This was a frustrating game to watch, especially in the first half. The Spartans made the fewest mistakes on offense and the defense took advantage of quite a few Illinois miscues in the second half to get the victory and win their first seven games for the first time in 44 years. Yes, 44 years, you read this correctly. No dance of joy today, just anticipation for a matchup next week against Northwestern to go 8-0.
Done, done, onto the next one.
