Illinois QB Tommy DeVito (ankle) to start vs. Minnesota

Illinois quarterback Tommy DeVito will start against Minnesota on Saturday.

DeVito practiced all week, but his status had been in flux after suffering an ankle injury in the first quarter of Illinois' 9-6 win against Iowa last week.

DeVito has been a steady force for the Illini this year after transferring from Syracuse following the 2021 season. He has tossed nine touchdowns and two interceptions while throwing for 1,163 yards this year.

Illinois has been one of the revelations of this college football season, as they are 5-1 and ranked No. 24. This marks the first time that Illinois has been ranked since the 2011 season.
