QB Munchie Legaux hospitalized
Cincinnati coach Tommy Tuberville and athletic director Whit Babcock visited Legaux at a hospital in Champaign, and reported that the senior was in "good spirits."
Babcock said on Twitter that Legaux was being examined by doctors from both Cincinnati and Illinois.

Legaux was hit by a pair of Illini players as he dropped back to pass midway through the fourth quarter of the Bearcats' 45-17 loss.
Legaux stayed on the turf for several minutes before being driven off on a cart. His teammates gathered around him on the field before he was carted away.
A New Orleans native, Legaux passed for 237 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 52 yards prior to the injury.
Senior Brendon Kay replaced Legaux under center, completing 6-of-11 passes for 71 yards.
