GAME OF THE WEEK

at Cincinnati 49 … Illinois 36
Tony Pike threw six touchdown passes including a 59-yarder to Ben Guidugli and with Mardy Gilyard making a brilliant 21-yard grab for a score, to go along witha brilliant 90-yard kickoff return for a score. A Guidugli two-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter gave UC a 28-7 lead and stayed ahead without a problem the rest of the way, but Illinois kept the pressure on with Juice Williams throwing three touchdown passes including two to Fred Sykes from 21 and seven yards out. Illinois held on to the ball for 36:18 and outgained the Bearcats 476 yards to 420.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Illinois QB Juice Williams completed 21-of-34 passes for 282 yards and three touchdowns, and ran 11 times for 67 yards and a score in the loss to Cincinnati.

CONFERENCE ROUNDUP

Illinois
… at Cincinnati 49 ... Illinois 36 ... Illinois has one game left against Fresno State, and now it’s time to empty the bench and see what’s in place for next year. Juice Williams got a chance against Cincinnati to come up with one more huge win in his spotty and interesting career, but that should be it. Illinois should be all about 2010 and needs to get several young players meaningful playing time. The defense has been mediocre all season long, and it wasn’t even close against Cincinnati, but more than anything else, the problems have come from dumb mistakes, bad penalties, and missed assignments. The team needs to tighten up in a big way before next year.
