The No. 22 Iowa Hawkeyes will host the Illinois Fighting Illini at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday at noon.

The Fighting Illini are 4–1 after a win over Nebraska last Saturday. Illinois quarterback Wes Lunt threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Geronimo Allison with just 10 seconds left in the game to propel the Fighting Illini to a 14–13 win. All of Illinois’s points came in the 4th quarter. Their one loss this season was against North Carolina in Week 3.

The Hawkeyes (5-0) are looking to remain perfect after defeating the Wisconsin Badgers for their fifth straight win to open the season. The Iowa defense held the Badgers to just 86 yards rushing in a 10–6 win.
