CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Illinois has added the University of Washington to its 2013 football schedule and will play the Huskies at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Illinois said in a news release Tuesday that the Illini will face the Huskies on Sept. 14.

Illinois has only played one other game at Soldier Field. That was a 10-9 win over Washington State in 1994.

The Illini last played in Chicago in November 2010. Illinois defeated Northwestern 48-27 at Wrigley Field.

The Illini also announced they've finished out their 2013 schedule by adding a Sept. 28 game against Miami (Ohio) at Memorial Stadium in Champaign.

Other non-conference games were also added against Youngstown State in 2014, Western Illinois and Kent State in 2015 and Western Michigan in 2016.
