|IL Plans Spring Football Game at Night
|CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) -- Illinois will play its annual Orange and Blue Spring Game under the lights this year. It's scheduled for a Friday night, April 12.
The Illini will start spring practices on March 5 in Champaign and run through April 10. One practice session will be held in Gately Stadium on Chicago's South Side on March 29.
Illinois finished last season 2-10. The Illini have since fired co-offensive coordinator Chris Beatty and hired former Western Michigan head coach Bill Cubit to run the offense.
