Illinois is a +7 home underdog in this one.  The total is 55.

For Bret Bielema, it's a return to the college ranks and the Big Ten. For Nebraska, it could be a watershed game as pressure mounts on fourth-year coach Scott Frost.

Bielema won two Big Ten titles and a share of a third in seven years at Wisconsin, but struggled for five years in Arkansas.

His team is favored to win 4 or fewer regular season games in 2021. The program hasn't had a winning season in 10 years and has been to just six bowls in the past two decades.

The Fighting Illini rank No. 84 in Athlon's Top 130 for 2021.

"They didn't know me from Adam," Bielema said of his players. "All I said is, "Here I am, let's get to know each other.' I would say there have been moments of high stress but also moments of levity and fun.

"I know this, walking off that field on Saturday we'll know a lot about who we are by the actions of our four quarters and how we react to moments of adversity as well as success."

Frost, meanwhile, is a disappointing 12-20 in three seasons and there is little to suggest 2021 will be any better.

Nebraska is a favorite to win UNDER 6.5 regular season games.
