Week 6 was a painful for two Big Ten starters, as Illinois quarterback Wes Lunt fractured his leg (out 4 to 6 weeks) and Michigan running back Derrick Green broke his clavicle (out for season).
The word came down officially before kickoff but Illinois will start quarterback Reilly O’Toole over Wes Lunt in tonight’s game against No. 21 Nebraska in Lincoln, Nebraska.
