The Penn State Nittany Lions will look to bounce back from the trouncing they took last week in Columbus when they host the Illinois Fighting Illini this Saturday.
Illinois is fresh off their own beating, following a 42-3 loss at home to Michigan State. The team has now lost three in a row and four of the last five. After starting the season 2-0, the Illini are now 3-4.
After head coach Tim Beckman infamously recruited Penn State players following the NCAA sanctions levied in 2012, the Illini have become an easy target for hate from Penn State fans.
Penn State beat Illinois last year in Champaign by a score of 35-7, and should be able to regain some confidence this weekend when Beckman's struggling offense comes to Happy Valley.
