NBC announced a big-time change to tonight’s broadcast of the game between No. 4 Notre Dame and No. 1 Clemson.
But rest assured college football fans, the best matchup of the day will still be on television.
According to the network, the top-five contest between the Fighting Irish and the Tigers will air on USA Network starting at 7:55 p.m. ET.
NBC, the original host of the game, will step aside during Joe Biden’s speech scheduled for 8 p.m. ET. The Biden campaign released a statement earlier in the day announcing that the president-elect would address the nation tonight.

According to Mark Skol Jr. of WNDU, USA will begin to simulcast the game at 7:55 p.m ET but NBC will not leave the game until the president-elects steps to the podium. NBC will move back to the contest, once Biden’s speech is finished.

Luckily, this solution seems to appease everyone. Football fans who would rather tune-in to Clemson vs. Notre Dame can still watch the game while others can tune in to Joe Biden’s first speech as the country’s president-elect.
Fans should be in for a treat when the Tigers kick off against the Fighting Irish at 7:30 p.m. ET.
