“This is very disappointing for our athletic program, our team and for the fans who were planning to attend the game in Dublin,” Illinois athletic director Josh Whitman said in a statement. “For our players, staff and fans, this would have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We will work diligently with Irish American Events and the Big Ten Conference to find a future opportunity for us to take Fighting Illini football to the Emerald Isle.”
