Notre Dame's football banquet will be Jan. 22 at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, coach Brian Kelly told reporters Friday.
The Irish pushed back their season-ending event because of a format change from a sit-down banquet to more of an awards-show event.
"We are going to take some risks and do some things a little bit differently," Kelly said. "It's something we wanted to give a shot at. That's why we kind of waited because we were putting this format together.
"It will be more entertaining for those who attend. It will have kind of like the ESPN/Home Depot kind of gala, that kind of look to it. We wanted a more interactive, and give a more in-depth, personal side to the individual award winners."
Kelly said ticket information for the banquet will be posted on und.com after Jan. 1.
