With the 2013 season less than four months away, Illinois has completed its out-of-league schedule for the following season.
The Illini announced Wednesday that the football program has added a pair of games to its 2014 non-conference. The second week of that season, the Illini will square off with Western Kentucky (Sept. 6) and follow that up two weeks later with a game against Texas State (Sept. 20) that will mark the end of the non-conference portion of the schedule.
Both of those games will be played at Memorial Stadium in Champaign.
It had previously been announced that the Illini would host Southern Illinois in the season opener, then travel to Washington to play the Huskies in mid-September.
The games against the Hilltoppers and the Bobcats will be the first-ever meetings in football between the respective programs. TSU, incidentally, will be playing in just its third season at the FBS level in 2014 after moving up from the FCS level in 2012.
