Notre Dame (19-1-1) will face Eastern Illinois on Friday, Nov. 12 (7:30 EST), with the earlier game featuring Wisconsin versus Dayton (5:00). The winners then will advance to Sunday’s second-round game at 1:00 p.m. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for children, students and senior citizens.

The winner of the second-round game at Notre Dame then will play a third-round game the following weekend (Nov. 19-21) versus the winner of games being hosted by the University of Connecticut (the top seed at that site is 13th-seed Arizona, which will face Colgate, while UConn and Harvard will meet in the other first-round game at Morrone Stadium).

The winner of the above third-round game then will head to the quarterfinals (Nov. 26-28), versus the team that emerges from games involving 5th-seeded Portland and 12th-seeded Texas.
