Illini Offense Thriving Under Cubit
The Illini under new offensive coordinator Bill Cubit spread the ball around. Eleven receivers caught balls and seven players got carries in last Saturday's 45-17 win over Cincinnati.
Cubit credits senior quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase for using so many receivers. He points out that the quarterback's 364 yards a game leads the Big Ten so far.
It's clear Scheelhaase is enjoying the partnership with Cubit, too. He particularly likes that Cubit spends the game on the sideline rather than in a booth above the field.
The Illini could face a stiffer test Saturday. They'll take on No. 19 Washington at Soldier Field in Chicago.
