STAMFORD, CT – August 15, 2022 – NBC Sports today announced the coverage schedule for its unprecedented 32n.d Notre Dame Football season broadcast, headlined by three primetime games against preseason No. 25 BYU in Las Vegas, Nev., on Saturday, Oct. 8, longtime rival Stanford on Saturday, Oct. 15, and preseason No. 4 Clemson on Saturday, Nov. 5, and Peacock exclusively game streaming for the second consecutive season. Earlier today, the Fighting Irish were ranked No. 5 in the Associated Press preseason poll – their highest preseason ranking since 2006.

Primetime games are highlighted by Notre Dame vs. preseason No. 4 Clemson on Saturday, November 5 with coverage beginning at 7:00 PM ET on NBC and Peacock. The two programs’ last regular-season meeting was in 2020, when the No. 4 Fighting Irish defeated the No. 1-ranked Tigers 47-40 in double overtime in college football’s most-watched regular season game of the 2020 season.

Notre Dame travels to Las Vegas to face preseason No. 25 BYU at Allegiant Stadium for the 2022 Shamrock Series on Saturday, October 8 at 7:30 PM ET on NBC and the Peacock. Next week, Notre Dame hosts rival Stanford on October 15th at 7:30pm ET at Notre Dame Stadium on NBC and the Peacock. The Fighting Irish have won the last three games against the Cardinal, including a 45-14 win last year at Stanford Stadium, and lead the all-time series 22-13. The series dates back to 1925, with the two schools playing nearly every year since 1988.

During the 2022 season, the Peacock will simulcast all Notre Dame games broadcast live on NBC, including pregame and postgame coverage.

Also, Peacock will exclusive stream Notre Dame hosts UNLV at 2:30pm ET on Saturday, October 22. The Notre Dame-UNLV game will mark the Peacock’s second-ever exclusive coverage of a Notre Dame regular-season football game, after providing exclusive live coverage of the win over Toledo last September.

The Peacock has previously provided exclusive live coverage of the Notre Dame Football Blue-Gold game, Notre Dame Pro Day and Notre Dame hockey.

NBC Sports begins coverage of the 2022 season on Saturday, September 10 at 2:30 PM ET when the Fighting Irish host Marshall in their home and head coach Marcus Freemanthe first home game at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, marking the first meeting between the teams. Next week, on Saturday, September 17th at 2:30pm ET, the Fighting Irish take on Cal and close out the season against Boston College on Saturday, November 19th at 2:30pm ET.

NBC Sports’ Jack Collinsworth will serve as a play-by-play commentator alongside the analyst Jason Garrett for Notre Dame’s 2022 season. NBC Sports’ Dawn Stevenson will report from the sidelines. Collinsworth and Garrett were paired together for the USFL’s inaugural season earlier this year. Stevenson was also a member of NBC Sports’ USFL commentary team.

Catherine Tappen will host pregame, halftime and postgame coverage throughout the season. She will be joined each game by both a Fighting Irish football alumnus and an alumnus of their opponent.

Last season, the Fighting Irish finished No. 8 in the AP rankings after earning a berth in the Fiesta Bowl and an 11-2 record. 2022 marks head coach Marcus Freeman’s first season leading the program after making his head coaching debut in the Fiesta Bowl.
