(WILX) -- Illinois coach Lovie Smith says the football game at Michigan State Saturday is the biggest game for his team since he has been the Illini coach.
And I agree he needs a prominent road win to build on Illinois' credibility as a team that has ascended a bit in the conference in this sport.
I can't see the Spartans losing this game but if they do, wow, then they go to Michigan and you wonder how in the world the season will end given a fourth straight loss if that happens this week end. But I don't see it at this point.
