ABC To Televise Notre Dame-Purdue Football Game

Nov. 6, 2001

ABC Sports announced today that it will televise the Dec. 1 Notre Dame-Purdue football game from Ross-Ade Stadium in West Lafayette, Ind., with a kickoff of 4:30 p.m. EST.

The Notre Dame-Purdue game will be part of a split national telecast, with Oregon-Oregon State also being televised by ABC in the same time slot.

The Notre Dame-Purdue game is part of an ABC tripleheader that day – with Miami kicking off against Virginia Tech at 1:00 p.m. EST – and the Big XII Conference championship game being shown in prime time.

The Notre Dame-Purdue game will mark the 111th consecutive Notre Dame football game to be televised by either NBC, ABC, CBS or ESPN.

The game originally was scheduled for Sept. 15, but it was postponed and rescheduled due to the terrorist attacks earlier that week.
