Arizona State's 2012 schedule really starts this Saturday, when they host the Illinois Fighting Illini. The Illini beat Western Michigan 24-7 in head coach Tim Beckman's debut, and bring a formidable defense to Tempe, along with major questions about the status of quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase's ankle.

Here are some early game week links to top stories from Illinois football:

  • Fletcher Page of Scout.com gives Beckman a game ball for the win.
  • Video highlights of Saturday's win.
  • Getting an indication on QB Nathan Scheelhasse's ankle injury may prove difficult.
  • If Scheelhaase can't go on Saturday, Illinois' backup QBs have not done much to inspire confidence.
  • IlliniHQ.com's Paul Klee provides his impressions of Saturday's win, including a DE that ASU must contain.
  • A video chat with potential All-American LB Jonathan Brown, the scourge of last year's ASU defeat in Champaign.
  • Some post-game quotes from Illinois head coach Tim Beckman and standout Illini players.
