The Virginia Cavaliers will play the Illinois Fighting Illini in a non-conference game on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois.

The Virginia Cavaliers are 1-0 this season after defeating Richmond by a score of 34-17 in Week 1. Virginia struggled more than I thought they would in week 1 and struggled with some turnovers, but they were able to finish strong and get the win. Brennan Armstrong threw for 246 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, while adding 105 yards and one touchdown on the ground. Perris Jones rushed for 104 yards and one touchdown, while Lavel Davis Jr. caught four passes for 89 yards and one touchdown for the Cavaliers. The Virginia defense gave up 330 yards in this game and didn’t force any turnovers.

The Illinois Fighting Illini are 1-1 this season after defeating Wyoming by a score of 38-6 in Week 0 and losing to Indiana by a score of 23-20 in Week 1. In their loss to Indiana, Illinois gave up the game-winning touchdown with 23 seconds left to lose the game. Tommy DeVito has thrown for 429 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception for the Fighting Illini. Chase Brown has rushed for 350 yards and two touchdowns, while Isaiah Williams has caught 16 passes for 138 yards and one score for Illinois. Illinois is averaging 29 points per game, 226 passing yards per game, and 238 rushing yards per game. The Illinois defense is giving up 14.5 points per game and 287 yards per game.

Virginia is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS loss. The under is 4-0 in Virginia’s last 4 games against the Big Ten. Illinois is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 non-conference games. The under is 9-3 in Illinois’ last 12 games.

Illinois did a lot of good things in their last game, but could not make enough big plays to get the win. Virginia looked a little sloppy against Richmond and will be on the road in this game. Illinois needs to clean up some things, but I like them in this matchup. The Illinois defense will be the difference in this game. I will take Illinois here.
