Notre Dame-Michigan to kick off at night again; ND spring game televised



It seems kind of ridiculous that a college football spring game would be televised live, because hey, it’s spring football. But this scrimmage is Notre Dame. The 83rd annual Blue-Gold Spring Football Game will be broadcast live at 1:30 p.m. ET Saturday, April 21, on NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus).
