The Illinois football team continues to receive support from their season ticket holders. Among those in attendance for the Illini’s win on saturday were over 20,000 fans with season tickets, 5,000 of them students says Assistant Director of Athletics Chris Hanna.

“I was really encouraged by the number of students at the first game, if you looked at the Block I it was really packed and even the two student sections next that were very packed as well”

The athletic department expects attendance to grow even further as tickets are still on sale for the remainder of this season’s games.
