WMU will make history Oct. 16 when it visits South Bend, becoming the first MAC school since the conference's inception in 1947 to play Notre Dame.

The Broncos will welcome six teams into Waldo Stadium, where they went 3-2 last season under head coach Bill Cubit. WMU will play versus Nicholls State on CommUniverCity Night, Sept. 11; Toledo Sept. 18; Idaho, winner of the 2009 Humanitarian Bowl, on Homecoming, Oct. 2; Northern Illinois Oct. 30; Eastern Michigan Nov. 13; and Kent State Nov. 20.

WMU will hit the road for half of its MAC West Division games, playing at Ball State Oct. 9, Akron Oct. 23, Central Michigan Nov. 5, and Bowling Green Nov. 26.
