Bad weather or not, I’m going to this one. The team doesn’t get up this way very often.

Predictions so far are for very nice weather. Fingers crossed.

Thanks for the info about how to watch Saturday's game. I currently have Direct/AT&T but looking to change, either Hulu Live or YouTube TV. Would love your suggestions on what service you like best (pros/cons).

Yep, we just need the W. One more step on our path to defeating Ohio U in the Quick Lane Bowl.

I want Williams to redshirt, but I'm really looking forward to seeing a few plays from him this week.

Nice username.

I'll be there as well. Haven't seen them live since 1994.

We switched to Hulu last year and really like it. On gamedays, you get all of the overflow stations, so you can see games all around the country. It has every channel that Illinois would ever conceivably be on, in BB or FB. I know Youtube is great for sports fans too, but I like the streaming library for Hulu and that puts it over the top for me.

Good stuff, glad you brought up BB as I was wondering if most games would be covered via Hulu. Sounds like no issues there!

I know the weather is a wild card but what are the odds there is a good Illini crowd on Saturday?
Pretty good. Several of us on this board are going. Seats seem to be moving well on StubHub.

Check us out on Saturday. Should be a lot of us behind the bench filling out the lower section of the Visitors side.

Detroit can be beautiful at Christmas.

I'm going to switch from Sling Tv to Fubo Tv. A little more expensive, but will better suit my needs. I believe it also has CBS Sports channel.

For this going to the game, The missus and I will at Vaughn’s Publick House, 59 Pratt St, Hartford, CT 06103 at 11:30 when they open. I will buy the first round for any Illini fan that finds me (look for a big guy in Orange and Blue accompanied by his embarrassed wife) 😝

My bunch will be behind the visitor bench on the 40 yard line, row 18. Wearing orange.

I live in NYC so this is an easy one for me. Just purchased three tickets in row 20 at the 40 yard line, $33 each. Got them directly from the UConn ticket office, no need for brokers. And according to the seating chart there is nobody near us in 360 degrees, if that's an indication of where that program is at.

I made the switch from directv to YouTube tv. I only watch sports, and I can’t remember what made me choose yttv over Hulu, but my guess would be more sports channels that I care about.

Our two tickets are on the 50, top row (it's only about 25 rows) lower deck on visitor's side. I think a lot of Illini will be there because it's an easy event to do. Prices are more than reasonable. And there's the fact that it's accessible to a lot of people who haven't been able to get to an Illini game, the first time ever that Illinois will play a game in New England.

We all won't be far apart. The stadium only seats 38,066.

I think when I decided on YTtV it was also because they let you have 3 concurrent viewers and some only let you have 2. That was a big factor for my family.

Incidentally, it's worth noting that this is a home-and-away series. Next year's schedule starts with Illinois State coming to Memorial Stadium for the first game, with UConn as the second game.
