Dance, dance

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.

Although the 6-foot-4-inch, 320-pound Boles stuck with traditional dance moves, Ward, all 6-foot-6-inches of him, used a few basketball moves to ignite the crowd, finishing with a left-handed finger-roll right into Boles' face and leaving the crowd screaming for more.
