Chicago will head east this weekend to play Carnegie Mellon and Case Western after overpowering Marian (WI) at home on Tuesday. Carnegie (6–6, 0–1) and Case (8–4, 1–0) are not powerhouses in the UAA, sitting in last and fourth, respectively. Chicago (12–0, 1–0) is undefeated in the weekend after playing their rivals in the past seven years.
