USC will be playing a prime time game at Notre Dame Stadium once again.

Notre Dame announced Wednesday that its Oct. 19 home tilt with the rival Trojans will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET, marking the third straight season that the Irish will host a night game.

Notre Dame beat visiting Michigan, 13-6, last season in prime time and lost to USC, 31-17, in 2011 in the school's first home night contest in 21 years.

As for the rest of the home start times, it's business as usual: The other five games at Notre Dame Stadium are airing at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

The Oct. 5 Shamrock Series contest against Arizona State in Arlington, Texas, will kick at 6:30 p.m. CT and air on NBC.

Road games at Michigan (Sept. 7), Purdue (Sept. 14) and Pitt (Nov. 9) will all air on an ABC or ESPN affiliate, while the Oct. 26 tilt at Air Force will air on CBS Sports Network.

The Nov. 30 season finale at Stanford will air on Fox, which was announced in March.

Start times for Notre Dame's five true road contests have yet to be announced.
