Army-Notre Dame football game at Yankee Stadium set for primetime kickoff

By Kevin Kelley -

The Army Black Knights versus Notre Dame Fighting Irish football game in 2024 will kickoff in primetime on NBC, Notre Dame athletic director Pete Bevacqua has announced.

Speaking to InsideNDSports, the new athletic director of the Fighting Irish revealed that their annual Shamrock Series game on Saturday, Nov. 23 against Army at Yankee Stadium in Bronx, N.Y., will take place under the lights.

“You think about where we’re going next year to play that game, Yankee Stadium — 100th anniversary of the Four Horsemen Game, against Army,” Bevacqua. “It’s going to be a primetime game on NBC. It’s going to be a blast.”

Since the Army-Notre Dame is an Irish home contest, NBC has the rights to broadcast the game and it will also be streamed live via Peacock.

The contest was officially announced just two months ago after the matchup was initially reported by Black Knight Nation back in 2021.

The game marks the return of Notre Dame’s Shamrock Series to Yankee Stadium, which celebrates the 100th anniversary of Notre Dame’s 13-7 upset victory over Army on Oct. 18, 1924.

Army and Notre Dame first met on the gridiron on Nov. 1, 1913 at Army’s parade field, The Plain, in West Point, N.Y. The Fighting Irish defeated the Black Knights in that contest, 35-13.

In their most recent matchup in 2016 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, the Fighting Irish defeated the Black Knights 44-6 to extend their lead in the overall series to 39-8-4. Army has not defeated Notre Dame since a 14-2 victory in South Bend in 1958.

Army, which joins the American Athletic Conference this season, opens its 2024 slate on Friday, Aug. 30 at home at Michie Stadium in West Point, N.Y., against the Lehigh Mountain Hawks.

Notre Dame is scheduled to open its 2024 campaign the following day on Saturday, Aug. 31 on the road against the Texas A&M Aggies.

Here My suggestion for CBS CFB Doubleheader 11/23

3:30PM UNLV at San Jose State(Mountain West)

7:30PM Penn State at Minnesota(Big Ten)

I 114% would like to see Notre Dame at Purdue Week 3 9/14 be televised on CBS with 3:30PM Kickoff.

Dan Rakow, CBS CFB Doubleheader on 11/23 is unlikely because two soccer games are also on CBS in the same day which is USLC Final (mostly at noon) and NWSL Championship (whether late afternoon or night) with only one CFB game on CBS in 11/23

Pardon me Alucard I was not aware of it at least CBSSN will show Mountain West Football although I would not mind seeing Mountain West have ocassional Football games on CBS should there be any vacancy to fill & they would make excellent Doubleheader on any given Saturday

So, I am curious … what the hell are the TV ratings when ND is on NBC and when they are on Peacock? They can’t be anywhere near the same.

I don’t think they have ever released the viewership numbers for the peacock games. They have said that they are “pleased with the number”. That tells me you are correct and that they are getting a disappointing number on peacock. You figure if they were even close to the NBC viewership numbers they would be releasing that.

In addition to NBC Saturday evening game Peacock in my educated guess will show four Big Ten games week 1 & 3 or 4 Big Ten games week 2.

Late November night game In New York. I’m guessing a lot of folks will want to see the weather forecast before buying tickets to this one.

Pardon for going off topic this is My dream Big Ten Football schedule for Week 1 of 2024 season.

To MeVandy I do this to be creative and it’s like doing a mock NFL Draft.

Have a safe & happy day.

Does not bother me I 114% will accept Criticism however I do love everybody.

While I agree with most of your game times/networks I feel like there will be a few changes. 1st of all I believe the two Thursday games will stay the same, with the Minnesota game being on FOX. I think Michigan State will move their game up to Friday night at 7pm and stay on BTN. As for Saturday I say the IU game will be BTN and Northwestern will be Peacock. The other change is at night I say the NBC game will be UTEP at Nebraska, and Western Michigan at Wisconsin will be FS1. My reason is I don’t think that Western Michigan is a great draw for NBC. Just my opinion.
