Fighting Illini to Play at Chicago’s Soldier Field
Illinois has added the University of Washington to its 2013 football schedule and will play the Huskies at Soldier Field in Chicago.
Illinois said in a news release Tuesday that the Illini will face the Huskies on Sept. 14.
Illinois has only played one other game at Soldier Field. That was a 10-9 win over Washington State in 1994.
The Illini last played in Chicago in November 2010. Illinois defeated Northwestern 48-27 at Wrigley Field.
The Illini also announced they've finished out their 2013 schedule by adding a Sept. 28 game against Miami (Ohio) at Memorial Stadium in Champaign.
Other non-conference games were also added against Youngstown State in 2014, Western Illinois and Kent State in 2015 and Western Michigan in 2016.
