Here's what Illinois coach Ron Zook had to say about Indiana quarterback Ben Chappell during his weekly news conference.
"If you look at just what (Chappell) has accomplished, it is unbelievable. In my opinion, he's the best guy we've seen, the best quarterback we have seen this year.
"He throws it all over the place, he has two great receivers. He's hard to get to because he has such a quick release. A lot of times, you just can't get to him. With the timed routes, he has a very, very strong arm, he throws off his back foot, it doesn't matter. He is going to get the ball there.
"In my opinion, he is the best. We kind of talked about between him and the guy from Missouri being the best guys at running their offense. If you watch him, boy he is very, very impressive. Of course, leading the Big Ten in the pass offense, I think he is fifth in the nation in pass offense. He has only thrown three interceptions, he's got 16 TDs (touchdowns). He doesn't get rattled, as I mentioned, doesn't get hit. He is hard to get to."
