Photo: Illinois breaks out blue uniforms for the first time

The Illinois Fighting Illini had an impressive Week 1 performance against the Kent State Golden Flashes and ended up winning 52-3. They are now set to face off against the Western Illinois Leathernecks in what is expected to be yet another blowout victory.

Illinois is wearing their blue uniforms for the first time ever today and they look awesome. There is no doubt that they have the talent to become a very solid football team this year and especially in the next couple of seasons. Today is a day to prove that they can take care of business against teams that they should beat.

Take a look at the picture that the Illini posted to their Instagram of the new uniforms for today’s game.
