The University of Toledo football team will play Illinois in Memorial Stadium in Champaign Sept. 2, 2023.

The contest will mark the first meeting between the two schools in football.

“The Illinois game adds another quality opponent to our future non-conference football schedule,” UT Vice President and Athletic Director Mike O’Brien said. “Over the next few years, we will play three teams from the Big Ten [Illinois, Michigan State and Ohio State], as well as Kentucky and Notre Dame. These are exciting games for our players and are also close enough for our fans to attend in large numbers.”

Toledo will open the 2018 season with three consecutive home games, beginning with the Virginia Military Institute Saturday, Sept. 1. Following a bye week, the Rockets host Miami (Fla.) Sept. 15 and Nevada Sept. 22.
