Ohio State's game against Illinois on Saturday could be a little sloppy.

Ohio State and Illinois will face off at 3:30 PM ET in Columbus on Saturday, and it doesn't look like the weather is going to be too pleasant during the contest. At the moment, according to weather.com, rain is predicted for almost the entire four-hour span the game will be played.

The forecast is actually a little better than it looked last night.

Ohio State is currently favored by 41 points, but if the weather is poor, that may be a little tough to cover.
