Spring game recap: Illinois

By staff

Illinois wrapped up its spring session Saturday with the Orange and Blue Spring Game at Memorial Stadium. The Illini played four 12-minute quarters and the offense beat the defense 26-21 as the team used a special scoring system.

Let's take a quick look at the game.

Game coverage: Here and here and here and here.

Quotable: "Right now that position is wide open between the guys coming back and the freshmen we have coming in. Whoever wants it, go get it. And someone should want it because there are some real good linemen blocking in front of then. Someone is going to get 1,000 yards. I don't know who that is yet. We're going to run the ball well. I have no question about that. We just have to find out who that person will be. That's probably the biggest concern I have -- who is that running back?" -- offensive coordinator Paul Petrino
