Road to March Madness: Illinois Fighting Illini (13-15) Vs. #2 Michigan State Spartans (26-3)
Who is going to end up ranked #1 when the regular season ends? The answer to that question seems to change with each passing day, but it’s fair to suggest that Michigan State will be in the hunt, as they are now on a 10-game win streak that has then #2 in the nation ahead of this week’s rankings and closer to March Madness. They had a comfortable win over Illinois in their previous meeting on the road and should continue their quest for #1 with a win here.
