The Clemson at Notre Dame broadcast will likely be interrupted this evening when Joe Biden addresses the nation on NBC and other major networks.
Clemson-Notre Dame will kickoff this evening a little bit after 7:30 p.m. E.T. The highly-anticipated ACC showdown is without a doubt the best college football game of the weekend. But another important event will impact the game’s broadcast.
It was announced Saturday morning Biden has won the presidential election. He’ll now address the nation this evening 8 p.m. E.T. The speech will be carried on most major networks, including NBC.
Considering the gravity of Biden’s address, Saturday night’s ACC game between the Tigers and Fighting Irish will be impacted. NBC is expected to use one of its alternative streaming methods, via Peacock – NBC’s streaming service app – while Biden delivers his speech.
Trying to get clarity from NBC in where you can see the game should the network break away from the game.
Advisable to download Peacock, NBC’s streaming service. That should be one option.

No official decisions have been made by NBC just yet. But the network has plenty of alternative options to carry Clemson-Notre Dame during Joe Biden’s speech.
Clemson at Notre Dame isn’t the only game that’ll be impacted by the political news. ESPN’s primetime game of the week between Stanford and Oregon will also kickoff around 7:30 p.m. ET. The game is being carried on ABC, but will likely be moved to one of the other ESPN channels.
Fighting Irish and Clemson fans should have no problem watching tonight’s game, despite Biden’s address to the nation this evening. NBC continues to sort through its broadcasting options.
