Notre Dame will host two night kickoffs in 2016, with Michigan State and Stanford pegged for primetime. Two of the country’s finest teams from last season will visit South Bend and play under the lights in a still-to-be-finished Notre Dame Stadium.
The Irish will kickoff against the Spartans on September 17 at 7:30 p.m. They’ll play at the same time on October 15 against the Cardinal before taking a week off and then welcome visiting Miami.
