Notre Dame-Michigan State Will Kick at 8 p.m. EDT

June 1, 2017

The 2017 University of Notre Dame road football game Sept. 23 at Michigan State will kick off at 8 p.m. EDT.

FOX Sports and the Big Ten Conference made the announcement yesterday.

The Irish play 11 football games in 2017 against teams that participated in bowl games following the 2016 campaign, and four of those postseason winners—USC, Georgia, Wake Forest and North Carolina State—will appear in Notre Dame Stadium.

In all, Brian Kelly’s eighth Notre Dame team will face seven 2017 opponents that claimed postseason victories a year ago. Road games at Boston College, Miami (Fla.) and Stanford are among those seven.

Here’s the full 2017 schedule, with only kickoff times for road games at North Carolina (Oct. 7), Miami (Nov. 11) and Stanford (Nov. 25) yet to be determined:
