    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- #13 Illinois will host #7 Nebraska at Huff Hall this Saturday, Feb. 1 at 4 p.m. for the sixth-annual 'Great Escape." The Illini look to improve on their 7-5 overall record and take the lead in the series against the Huskers, which is currently tied at 3-3.

    Admission is free and the first 1,000 fans through the doors will receive free foam 'takedown' fingers. Fans can also enter a raffle to win a pair of tickets to the men's basketball game vs. Iowa that takes place immediately following the dual (6:30 p.m.) at the State Farm Center. In addition, the Illini starters will throw t-shirts to the crowd during the starting lineups, and t-shirts will be thrown to the crowd after every Illini win.

    Fans are encouraged to wear all orange as part of an 'Orange-Out' to support the Illini and a free special-edition 'Great Escape' poster will be available for all fans at the marketing table and concession stand.
