2016 Illinois Fighting Illini Football Schedule

The Illinois Fighting Illini open a new regime this fall under former NFL head coach Lovie Smith. The 2016 Illinois Fighting Illini Football Schedule features some tough road games this season, which could make for a rough first season under Smith.

2015 record: 5-7, 2-6 B1G

2016 season win total: 4.5 wins (via South Point in Las Vegas)

Smith made stops at both Chicago and Tampa Bay while in the NFL, combining to win 92 games in his career. Now he looks to guide an Illinois program that needs some help. The past five years has seen the Fighting Illini win just 24 games and they have been to just a handful of bowl games the last decade.

QB Wes Lunt will be critical to Illinois' success. He's got a big arm and Illinois returns some options at the receiver position.
