Why in the world would Wisky have their HC game in mid November? That’s just dumb.

Because their October home games are Ohio St. and Nebraska. Those games sell themselves.

What? Only 4 teams chose their home game against Illinois for homecoming? I guess that Northwestern decided that 11/26 (Thanksgiving weekend) was a little to late for homecoming, denying Illinois a chance to go 5 for 5.
