On the other hand, the host for Thursday's game has not had a significant performance. The Redbirds are 6-6 overall and coming off from a 2-game losing streak.

But, Illinois State might have some confidence to face Purdue as they opened the 2022 season with a 3-2 victory over Arkansas. The loss marked the first time the second-ranked Razorbacks lost their home season-opening since 1994.
