Illinois vs. Wisconsin
One of the most anticipated games of the season for the Illinois Fighting Illini is against the Wisconsin Badgers tonight at the Kohl Center. A previous post
Illini Wonk profiled the game as the "Struggle of the Streaks."
At the half of this boring SEC game, the ESPN studio commentators said Wisconsin will have a tough time guarding the Illini and detailed their streaks:
- 8-game Big Ten road win streak (ties school record)
- 15-game conference win streak (t-2nd in Big Ten history)
- 19-game win streak (longest in nation, school record)
- 29-game regular season win streak
- 5-game home win streak vs. Illinois
- 8-game home win streak vs. ranked teams
- 26-game Big Ten home win streak
- 38-game home win streak (longest in nation)
For one of the two teams, all of these streaks will end. The live-blogging will commence soon.
