Michigan and Illinois are set for a top 5 matchup tomorrow evening. With a chance to lock up the B1G Championship for Michigan, Illinois’ Brad Underwood, said that a Big Ten Championship doesn’t mean much.
There’s no Big Ten championship that means much. …Yet, we’re part of something that’s much bigger. I try to be all about character. The league’s provided these games for us.”

Michigan is a 7-point favorite over the Illini.
Here were Underwood’s comments earlier on Michigan having to pause for three weeks due to Covid:
Brad Underwood sending some subs: "We’re going to honor the (postponed games) b/c we’re a member of this league. We’re not gonna be the teams that pick & choose what we play for whatever. We’re going to show up. I think it’s about character, & this team has a ton of it." #Illini
