Illini vs. Purdue fans

After watching the Illini suffer a tough loss on the road earlier in the week, thousands of fans packed Assembly Hall to cheer on Illinois against 13th-ranked Purdue on Sunday, Feb. 8, 2009. Although a large number of Purdue fans also attended, their presence wasn't enough to help their team as the Illini defeated the Boilermakers for the second time this season.
