Peters ‘Ready to Go’ for Redbox Bowl; Hansen, Imatorbhebhe Game-Time Decisions
The Illini will get their top QB back for the Redbox Bowl, but a key wideout and linebacker will be game-time decisions.
Peters missed the final game of the regular season against Northwestern due to a concussion he suffered in the final minutes of the game at Iowa on November 23rd. He also sat out the matchup against his former school, Michigan, on October 12th due to a concussion suffered at Minnesota the previous week. Luckily, the graduate transfer quarterback has not had any further setbacks following those two instances.
Imatorbhebhe, by far the Illini’s best receiver this season, sat out the regular-season finale against Northwestern. Hansen, who has been a staple of the Illinois defense, has not played since the Illini hosted Rutgers on November 2nd. We will have to wait until game time to find out their statuses for the Redbox Bowl, which kicks off at 3 PM central time on Monday.
