No. 18 Michigan at No. 11 Notre Dame highlights the Chicago area college football schedule this Saturday, with the game scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT from South Bend on NBC.
Undefeated and unranked Northwestern is also at home for a non-league contest against South Dakota at 2:30 p.m. CT, on the Big Ten Network.
The Fighting Irish haven't started a season at 4-0 in 10 years, and look to climb up the rankings with a win over another quality opponent after deflating Michigan State last week. Notre Dame's defense has given up just 30 points total all season.
Northwestern (3-0) has beaten Syracuse, Vanderbilt and Boston College, and should be undefeated heading into Big Ten play Sept. 29 vs. Indiana.
