August 23, 2022



Game Preview


On Saturday, Illinois gets their NCAA football season started earlier than most with a week 0 home game against Wyoming. The Fighting Illini narrowly missed a bowl in head coach Brett Bielema’s first season in Champaign, but look to take the next step by taking out a rebuilding Wyoming team from the Mountain West, making this one of the most exciting matchups to watch during week 0.


Wyoming had a great beginning of the 2021 season, starting 4-0, which included a win against the eventual MAC champions Northern Illinois. Still, they would struggle in conference play, and their six Mountain West losses were the most since 2015. The transfer portal was not kind to Wyoming, as they lost a lot of players on offense. All but one starting lineman returns, and both 2021 starting quarterbacks Levi Williams and Sean Chambers hit the transfer portal, along with leading rusher Xazavian Valladay and leading receiver Isaiah Neyor.


On the other side, Illinois finished dead last in passing in the Big Ten last year with Brandon Peters and Art Sitoiwski behind center. They landed a significant player via the transfer portal in former Syracuse QB and four-star recruit Tommy DeVito, and he will be the starter going into this game. This may not be a walk in the park for DeVito as Wyoming’s secondary finished 12th, allowing just 189.1 yards per game. The Illini may not rely heavily on Devito’s arm with Chase Brown in the backfield.


While both sides had some holes to fill, Wyoming is putting a brand new and unproven team on the field. This new offense will have its first test while stepping up in class against a well-coached Illinois defense. Things could get rough for the Cowboys. Meanwhile, new QB DeVito has the luxury of a solid offensive line and running back in his first game with the Illini. That should help him settle into the offensive and propel Illinois to an early lead, then Brown and the running game can take things from there.
