— Illinois will open the football season with a pair of morning games.

The Big Ten on Wednesday set 11 a.m. kickoff times for the Illini's Aug. 30 opener at home against Youngstown State and the Sept. 6 game against Western Kentucky. That game is in Champaign, too.

Both of those games will be televised by the Big Ten Network.

So far times have been set for six of Illinois' 12 games. Those include night games Sept. 27 at Nebraska and Nov. 1 at Ohio State.

The Illini finished last season 4-8 and 1-7 in the Big Ten.
