Looking at this Illinois game more and more. I think this is going to be a lot tougher than people think. To start off Bret Bielema has Nebraska's number more than any coach in the country (besides Urban Meyer). He has throttled Nebraska when he was at Wisconsin so that there alone makes me worried. I know that he was a major flop at Arkansas but the dude knows how to win in the Big 10. Brandon Peters is a capable QB that should have all the confidence in the world after last years game. Mix everything in with this being the first game of the year, where NU has had problems in the past getting it going and figuring out new personnel more than other teams. The game is also in Champaign, which isn't normally intimating but you have to think the game may be sold out with this being BB's first game, first game of full attendance in two years, etc.
