The kickoff time for Michigan State’s Week 10 matchup against No. 14/13 Illinois has been officially set. The game will be on the Big Ten Network and is set to begin at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

The No. 17/18 Illinois Fighting Illini welcome the Michigan State Spartans to Champaign, Illinois for the first time since 2016.

The Spartans are entering the matchup following a tough loss at Michigan. MSU moved to 3-5 overall and 1-4 in Big Ten play on the 2022 season.

Illinois is coming off a 26-9 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Lincoln on Saturday. The Fighting Illini are a surprise dark horse this season in the Big Ten West currently sitting in the lead of the division at 4-1 in Big Ten play and boasting a 7-1 record overall on a six-game win streak. It is the first time Illinois has a winning season since 2011 and the first time the Illini have started 7-1 since 2001.

Michigan State is hoping to snap a two-game losing streak to the Illini when the team visits Memorial Stadium next week, having lost 31-27 in Champaign in 2016 and 37-34 in the most recent matchup in East Lansing in 2019. Illinois enters the matchup ranked No. 14 in the AP and No. 13 in the Coaches polls.
