From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Notre Dame Football on NBC is a presentation of the Notre Dame football television package on NBC. The television network broadcasts all Notre Dame home games.



Since 1991, NBC has aired all of Notre Dame’s home football games. This has ensured that all of its home games are on national broadcast television. All of the games are aired in the afternoon, usually between 1:30 and 2:30 CST. The games are typically planned around NBC’s schedule of such events as the Ryder Cup or Breeders' Cup (before it moved to ESPN in 2006), and include full-game replays on NBC's HD-exclusive cable channel, Universal HD.

In 2009, the team began to play one home game each year at a neutral site for recruitment and exposure purposes, starting with a late October 2009 game against Washington State at the Alamodome in San Antonio; NBC televised this game in primetime, a first for the contract. A November 2010 matchup against Army at Yankee Stadium, which NBC will also televise, is also a Notre Dame home game, despite West Point's relative closeness within the Tri-State area.

In 1991, the initial contract was sold to NBC for $38 million for 5 years or $1.2 million a game. Notre Dame got half of the latter figure and its opponent got the other half.[1] In June 2008, NBC signed a contract extension, which covered from 2011 to 2015.[2]

According to Notre Dame, a portion of the television revenue goes towards academic scholarships.[3]
