B4: 2011 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl - Illinois vs. UCLA

Big Band Bowl Battle (B4) Disclaimer: Whenever possible, I tried to post band videos on equal footing; that is, amateur vs. amateur, professional vs. professional, pregame vs. pregame, halftime vs. halftime, and so on. I am, of course, limited to that which is available on YouTube. While I can appreciate if I selected a video that doesn't portray your band in the best light, keep in mind B4 is for entertainment purposes only. Thanks for stopping by!

The Marching Illini and the Bruin Marching Band meet in one of this postseason's dual Sudler matchups. Both schools found themselves so close yet so far from where they wanted to be. After all, if you play in the Pac-12 or Big Ten, you dream of facing the other in a bowl game in California. But instead of New Year's Day in UCLA's home stadium, the 6-7 Bruins will meet the 6-6 Illini a bit farther north in San Francisco.
