2020 Illinois Fighting Illini Football Preview

2020 Record: 6-7 (4-5)

2019 Scoring Offense: 26.7
2019 Scoring Defense: 26.2

2019 Offensive Rank: 79
2019 Defensive Rank: 54

Returning Offensive Production:  86%
Returning Defensive Production:  71%

2020 Recruiting Rank:  88

Offense: With a near fully intact line and top reciever Josh Imatorbhebhe passing on the NFLfor one more year second year QB Brandon Peters looks to thrive in 2020.  If the Illini can replace their two top rushers effectively, he will.

Defense:  Most of the D returns, and what was an average unit in 2019 should be better with Smith calling the shots.

Overall: The Illini coulb be 6-0 halfway through, but reality will set in over a brutal second half.

Projected 2020 Record: 7-5
