Beckman, Illini Rare Heavy Favorite Saturday

Illinois opens the season as a heavy favorite over Southern Illinois

WMBD/WYZZ-TV - CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The Fighting Illini will be a heavy favorite when it opens the season at home against Southern Illinois this weekend.

Tim Beckman knows that can be a trap for his young team.

"You've gotta have your game ready on Saturday because we're going to get everything they've got," Beckman said of the Salukis. "Same with us -- we're gonna give them everything we've got."

The Illini host SIU at 11 a.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
