By Eli Schuster, Sports Editor

The Fighting Illini Athletics program welcomed back the 2007 Illini football team over the weekend to celebrate the program’s trip to the 2008 Rose Bowl.

Former head coach Ron Zook turned consecutive two-win seasons in 2005 and 2006 into a 9-4 campaign that saw wins over No. 1 Ohio State, No. 5 Wisconsin and No. 21 Penn State.

Zook was one of many members of the team to return to Memorial Stadium for the weekend’s festivities. Illini standouts Juice Williams and Rashard Mendenhall were also there to reconnect with old teammates.

To take a look at a brief recap of the team’s celebration below.
