The University of Notre Dame confirmed Wednesday the kickoff for Oklahoma's game in South Bend, Ind., is set for 2:30 p.m. CT on Sept. 28. The game will be broadcast nationally by NBC.
The Sooners and the Fighting Irish met in Norman on Oct. 27 last season before a crowd of 86,031 at Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, a record attendance for OU football. The most recent meeting between these two teams in South Bend came on Oct. 2, 1999 when Notre Dame rallied for a 34-30 victory.
Oklahoma's lone victory over Notre Dame was a 40-0 shutout on Oct. 27, 1956, as the Sooners registered their second consecutive national championship under head coach Bud Wilkinson.
