With the blue collar Bulls ranking in the Top 5 in the league in team defense and rebound margin, look for them to improve on an already stellar 6-3 SU mark in games with same season loss revenge in their forward movement.
 
Stat of The Week
 
Illinois is 18-0 SU at home in games versus Iowa in which the Illini own a winning record.
