Kickoff time already released for Purdue-Notre Dame rivalry game
Kickoff between Purdue and Notre Dame in South Bend is still more than four months away, but the start time for the renewed rivalry contest has already been released. Times for Fighting Irish home games were announced on Thursday.
On Sept. 18, Purdue will travel to South Bend to take on in-state rival Notre Dame, with the game kicking off at 2:30 p.m. ET. NBC will broadcast the game, which also means former Boilermakers quarterback Drew Brees will be on the call as the network’s new analyst for Notre Dame.
The in-state rivalry between the Boilers and Irish used to be played on a yearly basis, but the two squads discontinued the annual contest after the 2014 game at Lucas Oil Stadium in 2014. The two teams have played 84 times with Notre Dame owning a 56-26-2 advantage all-time.
Notre Dame has won the last seven meetings, posting victories every year from 2008-14. Purdue’s last victory came in 2007 at Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette.
Purdue’s last win in South Bend came in 2004. It’s the Boilers’ only win at Notre Dame since 1974.
