The pep rally prior to the Notre Dame-Nebraska football game -- to be held in Notre Dame Stadium on Friday night -- will be televised live by ESPNews. The rally begins at 6:30 p.m. EST/CDT (7:30 p.m. EDT), with a student skit and other spirit activities. The Irish players and coaches will enter the Stadium at approximately 7:00 p.m. EST/CDT (8:00 p.m. EDT), at which time ESPNews will begin coverage.
Stadium gates will open at 5:30 p.m. EST.
Notre Dame students should enter at Gate E. The general public should enter at Gates C and D.
This will mark the third time a football pep rally has been scheduled for Notre Dame Stadium. Both the rallies prior to the '97 Georgia Tech and Michigan State games were moved to the Stadium from the 11,418-seat Joyce Center, the typical location. The Georgia Tech rally, which preceded the rededication of the expanded Notre Dame Stadium the following day, drew an estimated 35,000 fans.
