Notre Dame Football: Brian Kelly Told Miles Boykin He Was Going To Win The MVP In The Citrus Bowl

Brian Kelly can add "fortune-teller" to his list of traits. So can Ian Book.

NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Notre Dame vs Louisiana State Matt Stamey-USA TODAY Sports

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are the Citrus Bowl champs thanks to an amazing catch and run for a touchdown from Irish wide receiver, Miles Boykin. That score helped put the Irish ahead 21-17 late in the game, and the defense held beautifully.

What was brought to light in the post game press conference is that:

  • Miles Boykin dreamt about winning the MVP
  • Brian Kelly told Boykin he was going to win it
  • Ian Book told Boykin he was going to win it

That's a pretty good fortune for a guy that got lost a bit in the shuffle all season.

You can watch the entire press conference here. It also has Kelly talking about Brandon Wimbush and the health problems he had this week that helped Ian Book get more practice reps.
