Wow. Just, wow.
I just saw, with my very own eyes, Illinois beat the previous #1 team in the country, the Ohio State Buckeyes, in Columbus. That isn't supposed to happen. The Buckeyes don't lose games in the horseshoe, much less to Illinois? But boy, Juice Williams is a player.
So now here we sit, an opportunity at our feet. A win tonight would move us to #3 (#3!) in the BCS ratings, and with upcoming games against Missouri and (likely) Oklahoma we should have enough strength of schedule to move ahead of Oregon. You know what that means? We win out, we are playing in the National Championship game.

But before we get to all of that excitement, we have to take care of business tonight in Stillwater. I won't be able to watch this one live, stupid ABC regionalization and me living on the west coast (I get Cal-USC instead), but I will watch the replay on ESPNU sometime over the weekend. I'm sorry for my lack of 'Keys to the Game', I will try to post that sometime before game time.
When: 7 PM Central
Where: (Boone Pickens Stadium (44,700)
