Going to South Bend/Notre Dame

I know that Notre Dame defeated UCLA in South Bend, Indiana on October 21, 2006. I will always remember this date for two reasons:

1. I originally had tickets to the game but was not there.

2. I was not there because I got married that day.

There's more to the story than this but let's just say, given the conclusion to the game, I am glad I got married and did not go to the game to be left with that particular memory. (Thanks, Karl!)

I am now planning a trip to hopefully see Notre Dame play Michigan on September 11, 2010 at Notre Dame Stadium and I thought I would hit up my friends at BN for any insight. I plan to travel to and stay in Chicago for a few days before the game but does anyone have any insight as to:

1. Getting to South Bend from Chicago (shuttles? buses? planes, trains, automobiles?).

2. Getting tickets to the game (Notre Dame's website is not particularly helpful and I was appalled to see some suggested donation of $1,500 just to join some club in order to get a ticket or something).

3. Anything in particular which I should check out on ND's campus.

I appreciate any insight anyone may have and thank everyone for any skinny in advance. For what it's worth, I'm not a huge Michigan or ND fan, but I never pass up an opportunity to check out historic places, including historic stadiums or ballparks. I can't miss this opportunity (again) and I don't think any more marriages are in my immediate future.

This is a FanPost and does not necessarily reflect the views of BruinsNation's (BN) editors. It does reflect the views of this particular fan though, which is as important as the views of BN's editors.
