The first full weekend of college football will finish off with Notre Dame and Louisville on Labor Day. The television and kickoff info for that game is now out.
Notre Dame players Asmar Bilal, Shaun Crawford and Chris Finke helped announce the game time and TV programming this afternoon. You can see their video below.
The Fighting Irish and Cardinals will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, September 2 from Cardinal Stadium in Louisville.
ESPN will broadcast the game.
Before Commencement this weekend, our guys wanted to drop the kick time for our opener vs. Louisville.

Notre Dame and Louisville are coming off vastly different 2018 seasons. The Fighting Irish went undefeated in the regular season before losing to Clemson in the College Football Playoff national semifinal.
The Cardinals, meanwhile, went 2-10 and winless in ACC play in 2018. They are entering Year One under new head coach Scott Satterfield.
These two programs have only met once before, back in 2014. Louisville beat the Fighting Irish at Notre Dame Stadium.
This year’s game should be an interesting early test for both squads.
