Illinois Fighting Illini Game Notes

Redshirt senior QB Brandon Peters (shoulder) will return as the starter for Illinois in Week 3 against Maryland. Brandon Peters (6'5/220) entered 2021 as the starter in Illinois' first game against Nebraska, before exiting with an injury (left shoulder) in the team's upset win. He spent the next two weeks as an emergency starter for the Illini, but is now back in the saddle for Week 3, replacing quarterback Art Sitkowski who had gone 46-for-87 passing for 487 yards, and four touchdowns with just one interception in his two starts for Illinois.
