Notre Dame & NBC Sports Announce 2020 Kickoff Times
The University of Notre Dame and exclusive football broadcast partner NBC Sports have announced kickoff times for the 2020 Fighting Irish football campaign. The slate will feature a pair of primetime games at Notre Dame Stadium and a night contest at Lambeau Field in the return of the Shamrock Series.
All six home games and the Shamrock Series in Green Bay, Wisconsin, will be broadcast on NBC as Notre Dame and NBC Sports embark on the 30th season of their partnership.
Coming off three consecutive seasons with at least 10 victories, Dick Corbett Head Football Coach Brian Kelly and his squad will open the home slate on Sept. 12 when Arkansas visits for a 2:30 p.m. ET kickoff. It will be the first meeting on the gridiron between the Irish and Razorbacks. Western Michigan will then visit on Sept. 19 for another 2:30 p.m. ET kickoff.
The Shamrock Series returns on Oct. 3 when Notre Dame and Wisconsin meet at historic Lambeau Field. The game will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m CT. It marks just the second Division I football game at the historic venue, named for Packers founder and former Notre Dame Football player Curly Lambeau.
The Irish return home for the first of two primetime games in the House That Rockne Built with the Legends Trophy on the line against Stanford in a 7:30 p.m. ET kick. Next on the home docket is a Halloween contest with the Duke Blue Devils set for 3:30 p.m. ET.
