Beckman Interview | OC Cubit Interview | QB O'Toole Interview

The Fighting Illini completed spring practice No. 9 Friday morning at Memorial Stadium, getting a full two-and-a-half hours of work in on a beautiful 60-degree spring day in Champaign.

A long field goal by Ryan Frain that skipped off the cross bar before going through the uprights ended a spirited two-minute drill, sending the offense into a celebration at midfield to end practice.

It marked the final practice before University of Illinois spring break, which runs March 22-30. The Illini will return from break with six more practices starting Monday, March 31, and culminating in the annual Orange and Blue Spring Game on April 12 at 2 p.m.
