Michigan-ND a night game this fall


After years of playing in the afternoon, the Michigan-Notre Dame football game will be played at night for the second straight season.

The game, scheduled for Sept. 22 at Notre Dame, will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and be televised by NBC, Notre Dame announced Thursday.

The two teams played a thriller last season in the first-ever night game at Michigan Stadium, with Denard Robinson throwing a touchdown pass to Roy Roundtree with two seconds left to beat Notre Dame, 35-31.
