Iowa punter Tory Taylor punts the ball during a football game between Iowa and Illinois at Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Ill., on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2022. The Fighting Illini defeated the Hawkeyes, 9-6. Taylor’s longest punt was 49 yards.

The No. 16 Iowa football team will look to clinch the Big Ten West title on Saturday against Illinois. The Hawkeyes will be without perhaps their best player in star cornerback Cooper DeJean, who suffered a season-ending lower-leg injury in practice on Wednesday. Going up against this depleted Iowa secondary is Illinois quarterback Luke Altmyer, who returns under center following a one-game absence due to a head injury. Altmyer replaces Josh Paddock, who threw for 507 yards last week against Indiana.
