Rosemont, Ill. – Eleven games will take place across the conference this week, highlighted by No. 11 Northwestern’s two road games against top-10 opponents. The Wildcats, who were idle last week, will face No. 4 Syracuse on Friday in a neutral site game, and then visit No.  7 Stony Brook on Sunday. The first nationally-televised game of the season will occur on Wednesday, as No. 18 Johns Hopkins hosts Georgetown in a game that can be seen on ESPNU.

Michigan gets the weekly schedule started on Tuesday evening with a trip to No. 20 Stanford, while Rutgers continues the top-20 opponent theme when No. 13 Penn visits Piscataway on Wednesday.
