- On Saturday there will be a pre-game party featuring the Cheerleaders and special guests.
- The game will be Friday at 7:30, local time. The Phoenix Club will be purchasing a block of tickets for Illini fans at a 20% discount. Lower level sideline tickets are $89, and lower level corner are $49.
- The Phoenix Club has reserved a block of rooms at the Dobson Ranch Inn. The rate is only $79 per night, a 36% savings.
The Illini have a new Athletic Director, Mike Thomas and new Football Coach, Tim Beckman. This will be a great way to see the new Illini in action. You should reserve your game tickets, your concert tickets and your hotel room NOW!
