All week long, the status of Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase has been the source of great intrigue. After injuring his ankle last Saturday, Scheelhaases has participated in practice, but the reports on his effectiveness have been mixed.

While ASU head coach Todd Graham stated his belief that the Illini's top weapon would play, the latest word is that the Sun Devils will NOT have to contend with Scheelhaase.

We need to stress that no official word has been given, and we will monitor this situation throughout the day.
