UIC to host Illinois State in December

UIC has its first confirmed game for the 2015-16 season. The Flames will host Illinois State on Dec. 16, per a schedule release from the latter.

This will be the first meeting between the two schools since 2011, when Illinois State won 53-43 in Chicago. The teams met five years in a row from 2006 to 2010, with the Redbirds winning each matchup.

Illinois State holds a 14-7 advantage in the all-time series. The Flames have not defeated the Redbirds since 2004.
