Weekend Wrap: Miller injured in win

Each week during the football season, Illinois football beat writer Matt Daniels will recap how commits and targets for Tim Beckman's program fared during the previous weekend's worth of games.

High-pressure offense not enough for UI soccer

CHAMPAIGN — The 17 shots Illinois got off in the second half of Sunday’s game against Michigan is a number most teams wouldn’t be too upset about having in two games.

The Illini ended up with 23 total shots, but just six on goal in a 2-1 loss to the Wolverines. The rush of shots in the second half all pretty much had one thing in common — near miss.

Times and dates have been set for the first-round football games involving area teams:
 

Hiltzik, Vukic lead Illini in three-day event

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Illinois men’s tennis players Aron Hiltzik and Aleks Vukic each posted 4-0 records in singles play at the Conference Challenge, which concluded Sunday.

The three-day competition saw the Illini go 15-12 in singles play and 5-6 in doubles action.

Soccer falls, earns spot in conference tourney

CHAMPAIGN — Illinois was assured a spot in the Big Ten Tournament by halftime of Sunday’s game against Michigan by virtue of Nebraska’s 3-1 loss to Ohio State.

It was a piece of information, however, the Illini didn’t have. So trailing Michigan 2-1 with 30 minutes to play after Jessica Heifetz scored the go-ahead goal off a set piece, Illinois kept up the pressure offensively.
