2011 Kickoff Times Announced

NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Look for a couple of new wrinkles connected with football at the University of Notre Dame in 2011.

The Irish for the first time in 21 years will play a night game at Notre Dame Stadium – and the University for the first time will go to variable game ticket pricing for its home football schedule.

The Notre Dame-USC game slated for Oct. 22, 2011, at Notre Dame Stadium will kick off at 7:30 p.m. EDT.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to play host to a home night game. While we will do this only on a selective basis, we think it is important to occasionally use the platform of a prime-time game to promote the University and our football program,” said Notre Dame athletics director Jack Swarbrick.
