Notre Dame-Oklahoma game to kick off at 7 p.m. central

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Notre Dame will play its fourth prime time game of the season next week (Oct. 27) in Oklahoma.

ABC announced today that the game between the fifth-ranked Irish and the ninth-ranked (in the BCS) Sooners will kick off at 7 p.m. central time in Norman, Okla. Notre Dame's game at Michigan State was a 7 p.m. (central) start, while its games against Michigan at home and Miami at Soldier Field were both 6:30 p.m. (central) starts.

Irish coach Brian Kelly said last week -- while preparing for his first 3:30 local time start in nearly a month -- the kickoff time doesn't really affect his team's preparation on game day.

"It was the only time we did it, I'd probably be a little more concerned about the night game vs. the day game," Kelly said. "But we've done a lot of it. I think we feel comfortable with either schedule. The times when I've been concerned in my career has been those noon starts, because you're really jump-starting your schedule then."
