Today the University of Notre Dame officially announced the kickoff times for the 2011 season. Let's go ahead and run down them, shall we?

Go back up to October 22nd and stare at it again. Go ahead. Stare at the 7:30.
HOLY CRAP IT'S A NIGHT GAME IN NOTRE DAME STADIUM!
It'll be the first one since 1990, when the Irish beat Michigan 28-24. ND is 6-1 all-time under the lights, the only loss coming under Gerry Faust in 1984.
Southern Cal coming to South Bend for the first time with Lane Kiffin at the helm is huge. The first night game in 21 years is 0ff the charts. Rolling them together creates some sort of uber-event that I'm having a hard time wrapping my mind around.
Videos, I need videos.
GIVE ME THE VICTORY MARCH!
Now remind us what happened last year!
October 22nd. The countdown begins to a game for the ages.
