According to fbschedules.com/ncaa/illinois and and .../northwestern and .../notre-dame:

Notre Dame plays Bowling Green this year, and Toledo in 2021.

Illinois plays Akron and EMU this year, Toledo in 2021, Illinois State and Bowling Green in 2020, Toledo in 2023, CMU and Eastern Illinois in 2024, Ohio and WMU in 2025, and Southern Illinois in 2026.

Northwestern plays CMU in 2020, Ohio in 2021, Southern Illinois and Miami-Ohio in 2022, and Miami-Ohio in 2024.

... unless there have been changes not noted on the fbschedules website.

Apparently, as several have noted, ND isn't the only Chicago-area draw that would see no upside to playing NIU. ND with its national rep I can understand, but the other two ...? Why do I hear the sound of chickens cackling in the background?

The consider NIU the same way they consider other MAC schools. There is no upside to Toledo or BSU either. We just have not tried hard enough to schedule a game.

And you know this how?

Because we are a MAC team. the AD and HC of ND are discussing schedules. They say any team but NIU they are soo tough to beat. Lets schedule that patsy Toledo. ND does not consider any of the MAC teams among the top teams in the nation. NW and Illinois do consider us somewhat of a challenger.

I was asking you how you know we have not worked hard enough to schedule a game with ND.

ND would probably only play us if we used it as a "Home" game at Soldiers field. We probably get more money by scheduling games with FSU, Michigan etc. at their place than having a game in Chicago.I would like to see how we did financially from our games at SF. Also, we might ask for more than other programs due to our financial condition.
