Fighting Illini attracting Friday Night attention this Fall
CHICAGO, Ill (WICS/WRSP) —
The Fighting Illini Football team says there's enough to go around on Friday nights. Normally a prep football night, Illinois will play two games this September to end the work week. The University says it's a chance for the football program to get national exposure. Athletics Director Josh Whitman and Head Coach Lovie Smith say they respect the Friday Night high school tradition.
