Team Speed Kills takes a look at another North-South showdown in our almost completed series. The most unlikely Big 10 Champion of the last decade matched up against Nick Saban's LSU Tigers before they achieved powerhouse status.
A pre-game comment made one ABC commentator a savant when he said - "... the combination of the teams' aerial attacks and the dome's electric atmosphere could turn this contest into an instant classic."
The ensuing shootout produced 81 points, 958 yards (huh?), beers being thrown on the field by a nutso LSU crowd, and a vicious Illini comeback that fell short.
