Kick off Labor Day weekend with our hometown favorites, the Fighting Illini! On Saturday, September 3rd, don your best blue and orange and head down to Memorial Stadium for the season opener. The University of Illinois will be taking on the Murray State Racers at 2:30 pm.

You can make a whole day of it by tailgating at Grange Grove before the game. Enjoy food trucks, live music, and lots of games. And, be sure to check out the Illini Walk at noon, in order to give support to your team as they head to the stadium.

 

Can’t make it to the stadium for the game? Host a party at home with the other Illini fans in your family and catch the game on BTN.

 

Saturday’s season opener for the Fighting Illini marks the 127th year of football at the University. We are incredibly proud of this tradition in our Champaign/Urbana community.

 

There are so many exciting things to look forward to this football season for UI from the coaches to the players. It is the debut of Lovie Smith as the head coach. He brings years of college and professional experience to the team and leads a dedicated coaching staff. We are also keeping our eye out for several key players. As it is his last season in orange, quarterback Wes Lunt is sure to lead his team to victory. Defensive end Dawuane Smoot will be making big plays on the field this Saturday and in the future games to come. He is a preseason All-American and was named by Pro-Football focus as one of the top 20 best college football players in the country! With this winning combination, we are certain that the Fighting Illini will have their 19th consecutive win in a home season opener!

 

Whether you are catching the game or enjoying the last weekend of summer celebrating with friends and family, we wish you a very safe and fun Labor Day Weekend!
