Illinois Football Coach Zook Facing Heat In Champaign

When the University of Wisconsin Badgers football team faces the University of Illinois Saturday in Champaign, they will be facing an Illini team that has lost four-straight games.

That losing streak has generated questions about head coach Ron Zook’s job security.

At his weekly press conference Tuesday, Zook warned reporters that he only wanted to answer football and Wisconsin-related questions.

When someone did ask him a question about it, Zook walked away from the podium and off the stage.

Illinois is 6-4 overall. Saturday’s game in Champaign begins at 11 a.m.
