Ohio State opened as a 38.5 point favorite for their home finale against Illinois. Illinois (2-8) is as bad as they come in the Big Ten, and has not won a game since defeating Western Kentucky on September 9. The Illini rank 123 in total offense, as well as 104th in rushing defense. It’s going to be a long day for Lovie Smith and company.
