16 Saturday Morning
Join Gabby Gonzalez and Gary Sieber for 16 Saturday Morning. Tricia Harte will be live in the tailgate lots plus Jeff Jeffers will join the show at the end of the newscast to preview the Irish battle with the Rice Owls.
Countdown to Kickoff
The NewsCenter 16 crew takes you live inside Notre Dame Stadium to prepare you for the season opener against Rice. Jeff Jeffers, Chuck Freeby and Angelo Di Carlo will anchor the show from the field with Jim Johnston and Tricia Harte providing reports from high above the stadium and out in the tailgating lots.
Jeff, Chuck and Ang will break down the latest on Notre Dame's academic investigation, the return of Everett Golson, field turf, Under Armour, a look at ND's new defense, a report on the new faces of the Irish and a preview of the Rice Owls. Irish Athletic Director Jack Swarbrick will join us live, as will Irish Illustrated Senior Editor Tim Prister.
We'll also give our keys to the game, X-Factors, and season predictions.
And you won't want to miss Jim Johnston's excellent Scene Setter.
