The last time Illinois beat Northwestern was Jan. 25, 2014. While the Wildcats have won over a dozen straight since against the Illini, this is not your Illinois team of old. Headlined by a new coach and leading scorer transfer, the Fighting Illini have gone from the bottom of the conference last year (7-20, 1-13 B1G) to receiving votes in the AP Poll behind a 13-2 record and 3-1 conference start. Meanwhile, the ‘Cats are still looking for their first Big Ten win.
