BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Kevin Wilson knows what the Indiana Hoosiers must do to get better.

Clean up the mistakes.

The offense is struggling to get in the end zone, the defense is last in the Big Ten against the run and there are too many blown pass coverages.

On Saturday, they'll host No. 19 Illinois (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten), a team more than capable of making the Hoosiers (1-4, 0-1) pay for those sorts of mistakes.

The Illini are off to their best start in a half century thanks in part to last week's dramatic comeback against Northwestern. This is their first road trip of the season and the Hoosiers have won five of the last seven games played in Bloomington between the two teams.
