After last week's 52-3 route of Murray State in the debut of head coach Lovie Smith, the Illinois football team will host a much bigger challenge as North Carolina comes to Memorial Stadium in the return of a home and home series with the Tar Heels.
 
While the Illini opened the season with a route of a mid-major, North Carolina let a late lead slip away to ninth ranked Georgia.
 
Illinois was crushed in Chapel Hill last September 48-14.
 
Game time from Memorial Stadium Saturday night is 6:30 pm and can be seen on the Big Ten Network.
