ND Kickoff Times Set

In case you’re dying to know, here are the kickoff times for Notre Dame’s seven home football games next season. Georgia Tech (Sept. 1), Michigan State (Sept. 22), Boston College (Oct. 13) and USC (Oct. 20) all start at 3:30. Navy (Nov. 3), Air Force (Nov. 10) and Duke (Nov. 17) all start at 2:30. All the home games will be televised by NBC.

As you probably noticed, the Irish play Boston College and USC on consecutive Saturdays. Not to be negative, but recent history suggests this won’t go well for the home team. They are 0-9 against those teams in recent years (0-5 against USC, 0-4 against Boston College).

The good news is they follow with a two-week stretch against Navy and Air Force. They are 54-1 combined against those teams in recent years.

And now you know.
