Stadium seats are comfortable, typical price on food and drinks. Now the Illini just need to get their football program together.

The University of Illinois graduation for 13,000 graduates was help here and was just the right size. There are very few covered areas so make sure you have sun protection, hats, and hydration.

I've been to several football games here and a few special events. The place is good and not too confusing to navigate. The refreshments aren't too expensive and the staff is helpful and courteous.
