Is there time to add a new starting player before this week's game? This little U of I football player figurine was created by a Canelos potter from Ecuador who visited Urbana and saw a game. This artifact is on display in our exhibit Knowledge at Work: The University of Illinois at 150. Stop by and see him after the Homecoming game! #ILLINOIS150 #ILLINOIShomecoming
