#13 Purdue vs #21 Illinois Game Thread

Juan Crespo

Purdue hosts Illinois live on BTN at 8pm for this season's first Volleyball Game Thread

This open thread is being set up to go automatically, so I hope it doesn't interfere with the football thread if the game is still going. James and I will be at the game, and T-Mill is generous to lend us the SB Nation Camera, so we will be able to provide our own highlights of the game by Sunday. I don't know about James, but I'm still stuck in 2010 with a non-smart phone, so I will just be tweeting during the game (@Air_Force_Juan), but I won't be able to reply to most tweets (I only get notifications if someone I follow tweets at me).

Purdue is coming off its 3-1 win against Northwestern last night as Illinois won in Bloomington 3-1 as well against Indiana. The Illini have been a bit disappointing this year coming off their National Title run last season before they lost to UCLA and starting the season #7 in the nation. But just like Purdue, all of their loses have been against teams currently ranked in the Top 20, causing them to fall to #21 this week. Illinois will be seeking a big win tonight as they play Purdue, but Purdue also wants to continue it's momentum, though not pretty, after its 3-0 B1G start this season.
