Most college football teams begin fall camp with a few drills, but Illinois did something a little different.

Instead of sticking to football, the Fighting Illini opened camp with a dance-off between two 300-pound lineman.

Senior offensive lineman Chris Boles faced off with senior defensive lineman Jihad Ward while the rest of the team surrounded the dancing stars.
