The Minnesota Golden Gophers beat the Fightin Illini yesterday 40-17 in Illinois' Homecoming game that you heard right here on the Big Z. The Illini were plagued by turnovers and injuries in the loss. Receivers Malik Turner and Dominic Thieman and running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn were all injured, with Turner taken to a local hospital as a precaution, but he was back in the locker room before the end of the game. Next up for the Illini is another home game next Saturday against Michigan State and as always you can hear that game right here on the Big Z.
