And I do mean ALL (hello Birmingham!)

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

Yes indeed this is still June and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are still 87 days away from the season-opener against the Louisville Cardinals — but it’s never too soon to look at the bowl picture. If it was, why would so many people give their win/loss predictions?

We might as well get out in front of this before the November questions come around. Remember, Notre Dame has the same bowl tie-ins as the ACC — except they have a little advantage. The Irish can be selected to play as the ACC team for a bowl as long as they are within one game of the eligible ACC team. So... a 10-2 Notre Dame team could technically be picked for the Orange Bowl over an 11-1 ACC school.

Here are all the bowl tie-ins for the Irish in the 2019-2020 season. Bowls are listed in order of date played.
