Would think that's more disruptive to them than us, if anything.
Don't have to carve out time in the middle of the day to watch us and don't have to worry if the game goes late.
Besides, I would think all the night games would add to our cache with recruits "How many other places can you play at were people can see you in prime time most of the time"
The PAC 12 doesn't play all that many games before about 6 or so EST, and it could be my confirmation bias, but they traditionally don't play all that well in early games. On the other hand, we don't have to change our schedule at all as it falls exactly in the same slot we normally play.
Not really. Five of our first eight games this season will have been night games. So, it does not really matter when they schedule the game.
Pac-12 teams vs. OOC more than anything else. However, for what it's worth, I believe ND is perfect in such late-late starts -- at Arizona in 1980, at Stanford and at Hawaii in 1991 are the ones I can recall.
That's because there will be no ACC game in that slot, and the Big 12 games are all Fox or FS1 that week. Virginia-FSU will be at 6:30 ET on ESPN, with Oregon-Utah at 10 ET.
If a Big Ten game is put in that slot, it would be reverse-mirror with ND-ASU, with part of the country seeing one game on ABC and the other game on ESPN2, and vice-versa. But ND-ASU still would be a national telecast.
EDIT: ND-ASU will be national on ABC. Michigan-Northwestern will be on ESPN2. No reverse mirror.
We also don't have to miss Alabama-LSU, which will be in prime time on CBS, or OSU-MSU, prime time on ABC.
ESPN2 will air Michigan @ Northwestern nationally
the last one out at ASU was scewed up with technical difficulties for the whole game. How long ago was that?
It was very hot that day (October 10). It should be a lot more comfortable on November 8, although there are no guarantees.
Joey Goodspeed (fullback) had like 150 yards rushing on 6 carries, if I recall correctly, and we won.
