Redbox Bowl Watch: Illinois vs. California
CHAMPAIGN – When Illinois faces off against California in the Redbox Bowl on Dec. 30, it’ll be Game No. 13 of the season. But for Milo Eifler, it’ll be Game 5 of a pivotal best-of-five series.
Eifler’s cousin, Ricky Walker, is a wide receiver on Cal’s football team. Eifler and Walker played basketball together at Bishop O'Dowd High School in Oakland (Calif.). But Walker transferred to rival San Leandro High School. Walker and San Leandro defeated Eifler twice in hard-fought, one-possession games.
After graduating from high school, Eifler headed to Washington and Walker went to Cal. Washington and Eifler won both games against Cal.
