Heading into their third bye week since the beginning of September, the Fighting Illini find themselves a game above .500 at 3-2 following their loss to Nebraska on Saturday. The Illini have had many ups and downs already, from an upset over Cincinnati to a 39-19 loss to No. 25 Nebraska.

New offensive coordinator Bill Cubit has already made a tremendous impact on the Fighting Illini offense, which is averaging 36.0 points per game after five games.

Many predicted the Illini would struggle on all sides of the field this season including ESPN, who forecasted Illinois' season as "not good." The Illini have surprised many people and teams and many statistics are a bit startling considering the bleak outlook prophesized by some.

Here is a look at five startling statistics from the Fighting Illini's 2013 campaign.
