The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have announced kickoff times for their 2013 home games and their “Shamrock Series” contest against Arizona State.

Notre Dame’s “Shamrock Series” game against the Sun Devils will be played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday, Oct. 5. The game will be televised by NBC at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The USC game on Oct. 19 will be televised by NBC at 7:30 p.m. ET. It will be the second consecutive time that Notre Dame and USC have played at night in South Bend. The last time was Oct. 22, 2011 when the Trojans defeated the Irish 31-17.

Oklahoma, USC and BYU make this an exciting home schedule. All three teams lost to the Irish but are projected to be better this year. Congrats to you Mr Swarbrick, very happy with this home schedule.

NBC has a good slate of Notre Dame home games this year. I don’t understand why NBC doesn’t purchase a few other independent games (i.e. Sept. 7 -Texas at BYU and Oct. 12 – GA Tech at BYU) to have a more complete slate of games. They allow ESPN to have to many good games that get lost in its glut of games. NBC could easily pay a million dollars per game for those two games and make a mint. It might be worth buying the rights from ESPN.

Its all about nd nobody will watch any byu game if notre dame is playin! No disrespect intended to byu
