Illinois Fighting Illini 2016 Football Schedule

I begin breaking down the Big 10 2016 football schedules with Illinois...

9/3 Murray State
9/10 North Carolina
9/17 Western Michigan
10/1 at Nebraska
10/8 Purdue
10/15 at Rutgers
10/22 at Michigan
10/29 Minnesota
11/5 Michigan State
11/12 at Wisconsin
11/19 Iowa
11/26 at Northwestern

Notes: The non con schedule is fairly challenging in September, and save for Murray State, Illinois will likely be a dog in 2 of 3 games, including to Western Michigan...October has two solid opportunities for wins, and those could come against Rutgers and Purdue, but the Illini should be dogs in their other 3 games in the middle month of the season...November could be fairly brutal for Illinois, as I really see no lock down shots for wins.
Overall Projected Record: 3-9
