    The same group the wrapped up day one of Camp Rantoul started day two, as the Orange team worked out Tuesday morning. They went through a similar routine as on Monday, with individual position drills, 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 work. 

    While the Orange practiced, the Blue squad lifted weights, before coming back together with special teams meetings, lunch and position meetings before the Orange starts the evening session at 4:45.

    The Blue squad finished things up on day two with a spirited afternoon practice session, while Orange team lifted weights. The big Illini football news on Tuesday was the announcement that Illinois will play a 2013 game at Chicago's Soldier Field against Washington on Sept. 14.

    There will be one more split squad practice on Wednesday with the Blue squad going at 9 a.m. sharp and the Orange team taking the practice field at 4:30 p.m. Starting on Thursday, the Fighting Illini will practice together as one with a single session at 9 a.m. Friday morning's practice will be the first day in full pads.
