Football is not the only Michigan State squad competing against the Illini this weekend.

The women’s swimming and diving team will square-off against Illinois Friday at McCaffree Pool, and if history says anything about these two teams, it could come down to the last event.

Week in Review: Pistons Drop Three In-A-Row in Preseason Action
