2 Illini ineligible for bowl game

Illinois announced Friday that senior running back Jason Ford and redshirt freshman wide receiver Jake Kumerow are academically ineligible under NCAA rules and will not participate in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

Ford lead Illinois with 600 rushing yards on 155 carries (3.9 ypc) and seven touchdowns. He finishes his career 1,962 career rushing yards, which ranks 16th on the all-time Illinois rushing list, and 26 career rushing touchdowns, which is second in Illinois history behind only Howard Griffith’s school record of 31. Kumerow played in seven games in 2011 and had three catches for 15 yards on the season. All three of his catches came in the regular season finale at Minnesota on Nov. 26.
