Video: Illinois coach Tim Beckman, quarterback Wes Lunt on Washington

Here’s video of Illinois coach Tim Beckman and sophomore quarterback Wes Lunt talking about last Saturday’s 42-34 comeback win over Western Kentucky and this week’s game at Washington.

Beckman said the team’s motto this week: “Fight for five.”

“The biggest for a lot of people – including myself – did not realize this. This is team has the opportunity to be only the fifth team in the last 25 years at the University of Illinois to win three games in a row, the first three games. Our motto for this week is fight for five because we could be the fifth team that’s reached a 3-0 start in their football season here at the Fighting Illini.”

And here’s video of Lunt, who was named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week after the win over WKU. He posted the second-most passing yards in Memorial Stadium history – six shy of the record – and fourth-most in UI history, completing 35 of 50 passes for a personal-best 456 yards and three touchdowns with only one interception.
