The Illini need one more victory for their first bowl berth since 2014. They are on a three-game win streak that began with an upset of Wisconsin, followed by a win at Purdue and against Rutgers last week at home. It is Illinois’ first three-game win streak under fourth-year coach Lovie Smith and the program’s first since 2011. Illinois has not won four straight Big Ten games since 2001.
