I'm going to buy at least two tickets. I was just reading about the "Team Tix" feature that allows you to reserve tickets for a fee of at least $10 then if your team makes it to the B1G title game, you get the tickets you reserved for face value. If your team doesn't make it you lose your reservation fee, which may only be $20. It might be easier than buying tickets then trying to sell them if UM doesn't make it.
"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
