In early October, the Fighting Illini marched into Kinnick Stadium looking to ruin Homecoming for the Hawkeyes.
Per usual, the Illini could not secure the victory and the final score of the game was 16 to 45 with Iowa taking the easy W. However, the game was much closer in the first three quarters than the score suggests.
