For a second straight week, the Illinois State Redbirds are ready to crash the homecoming festivities.
Illinois State (2-3, 1-1 Missouri Valley Football Conference) will look to make it two upsets in a row as it faces the Salukis at 2 p.m. Saturday in McAndrew Stadium. SIU head coach Dale Lennon said he expects a tough game from the Redbirds.
"They had good players even last year," Lennon said. "They've been very close to turning the corner and having a big season. The biggest thing is confidence. Now, they feel like they can do things in the conference."
