The Feb. 6 men's college basketball game at Purcell Pavilion between No. 2 North Carolina and No. 25 Notre Dame now has an official tip time.

Notre Dame announced Tuesday that the game will begin at 7 p.m. and be televised by ESPN. The game was originally listed as a 2 or 7 p.m. start.

It will be the only regular-season meeting between the Tar Heels and the Irish. Notre Dame won both matchups last season. In January, Notre Dame won for the first time in school history in Chapel Hill, N.C., then won its first-ever league tournament championship game after beating the Tar Heels in the Atlantic Coast Conference finale in Greensboro, N.C.

Notre Dame's Feb. 13 home game against Louisville is still TBD with a starting time of 4 or 9 p.m.
