Michigan State Basketball has officially announced their tip time for the huge showdown against Notre Dame this Saturday.

The game will tip-off at 8 p.m. ET this Saturday night and it’ll be televised by the Big Ten Network, according to the Spartans official Twitter account for basketball:

This will be the Spartans’ second game of their season as they host Eastern Michigan this Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET. That game will also be shown on the Big Ten Network.

Before the Spartans play the Fighting Irish on Saturday however, their football team will play host to No. 11 Northwestern at 3:30 p.m. ET.

They’ll have a chance to pull off a big-time upset and then beat one of the better programs in the ACC on the same day if they can pull it off.

After their game against Notre Dame, Michigan State will have the ACC/B1G challenge as they’ll play No. 9 Duke on Dec. 1.

Playing during the COVD-19 pandemic will present some expected challenges along the way. Hopefully the Spartans are able to complete these big-time non-conference showdowns early in the season without any issues.
