This based on a preliminary schedule released by Loyola's Athletic Department which was distributed at an alumni event and posted to the Ramblermania Forums.
The brazen schedule opens with a challenging visit to Champaign for the Illini's shot at Horizon League redemption.
Then the Ramblers travel to Manhattan to complete their home/home series with Kansas State that resulted in a 60-68 loss to Jacob Pullen's former squad last season before the Nov. 26 Norville Center opener.
Loyola will play host to Creighton, DePaul and Chicago State thereafter.
The Creighton Blue Jays welcomed the Ramblers in a 2010 Bracketbusters game, winning 78-58 over Jim Whitesell.
Last season's 7-21 Fordham Rams return all starters and capped off a 17-consecutive loss rebuilding season with a 77-73 win over Massachusetts.
The Rams have finished at the bottom of the A-10 for the past three seasons, and are a pretty safe bet for new head coach Porter Moser and his Ramblers at home.
