UE and Notre Dame will tip at 1 p.m. CT Saturday in the teams’ basketball season openers.
News that Notre Dame’s football game next weekend against Boston College will kick off at 7 p.m. CT ensured an early tip time for the Irish’s basketball game against the Aces.
Even though Notre Dame’s football team plays at Boston College, the athletic department doesn’t want the games to conflict or, quite frankly, few fans would show up for a basketball game.
Notre Dame’s basketball team went 16-1 at home last season and is ranked No. 22 in the first Associated Press poll.
ESPN3.com will broadcast Saturday’s game.
