Michigan’s 2013 matchup against Notre Dame at Michigan Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 7, will be televised in prime time on ESPN or ABC. The kickoff time and network designation will be announced at a later date. It will be the second night game at the Big House since its opening in 1927. The first, a 35-31 victory over Notre Dame in 2011, was televised by ESPN. The telecast was ESPN’s most-viewed and highest-rated regular-season college football game in 2011, averaging 7,541,000 viewers and a 4.5 U.S. rating (5.2 ESPN coverage rating).
 
This will be the third consecutive night game played between the winningest programs in college football history.

That’s going to be it for this post.
