Iowa goes for its fifth consecutive win Saturday when it visits Illinois for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff.

The Illini are 2-3 after having last week off when Ohio State had a COVID-19 outbreak. Both teams’ most recent opponent was Nebraska, with the Hawkeyes prevailing 26-20 on Black Friday, while Illinois trounced the Cornhuskers 41-23 the week before.

Lovie Smith is in his fifth season as head coach at Illinois and has never beaten Iowa, just like Minnesota’s P.J. Fleck and Nebraska’s Scott Frost.

Iowa is 4-2 this season and Vegas has the Hawkeyes as a 13.5-point favorite for the second straight week. The over/under is 50.5.

Iowa running back Tyler Goodson was tackled by Illinois linebacker Dele Harding on this play during the Hawkeyes' 19-10 victory in 2019. The Fighting Illini have not defeated the Hawkeyes since 2008, and will try again at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
