🏈When will it end?: QB Mitch Trubisky earned his first start since Week 3, but despite a serviceable performance, the switch from Nick Foles didn’t seem to make much of a difference. He threw for three touchdowns and 242 yards, but was not without missteps: he also threw two interceptions, a direct result of poor decisions to throw into heavy coverage.

  • Aside from the Bears’ usual offensive woes, Green Bay’s offense marched down the field all game, seemingly unaffected by the Bears top-ranked defense. Usually it’s the defense which keeps Chicago in the game, but last night they left us wanting more.

🏀College rundown: The U of I Fighting Illini’s basketball season is already off to a hot start. The women won their opener against the Indiana State Sycamores 68–49 while the No. 8 ranked men’s team is 3-0. Yessir!

  • The men face their first top 25-ranked opponent on Wednesday when they travel to Texas to take on the No. 2 Baylor Bears. Game on!
