Better set your alarm clock.

Notre Dame's football game against Navy on Nov. 5 will kick off at 11:30 a.m. and be broadcast on CBS, the programs announced Tuesday. The annual game will be played at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla., home of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Navy game will be Notre Dame's second game in an NFL stadium next season, joining the road game at Syracuse at MetLife Stadium on Oct. 1. The Irish will also play their annual Shamrock Series game against Army at a neutral site inside the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on Nov. 12.

Last season, Notre Dame defeated Navy 41-24 at Notre Dame Stadium. The Irish have won five consecutive games in the series.

The Navy game is the first game of the 2016 season to be granted a set kickoff time.
