Notre Dame announces 2019 home kickoff times

Watch the best moments and top plays from the 90th annual Notre Dame Blue-Gold Game, as Gold defeats Blue, 58-45.

During the day-long hoopla of its spring finale, Notre Dame slipped in an announcement of all seven kickoff times for the 2019 home schedule.

Including only one primetime game, 7:30 ET vs. USC on Oct. 12, is perhaps a surprise to some, but it underscores the difficulty of the Irish road slate. The three opponents expected to be the most difficult all host Notre Dame: Georgia on Sept. 21, Michigan on Oct. 26 and Stanford on Nov. 30.

The welcome surprise — especially for those listening to the times in the press box Saturday — is the Irish schedule will include four 2:30 ET kicks.

None of Notre Dame’s road games have times associated with them yet. The home slate’s times coming this soon is a perk of the contract with NBC. There is no need to wait to see which competing games warrant higher billing.
