The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are still fighting for bowl eligibility, but at 4-3 they’re only two wins away from accomplishing that remarkable feat — remarkable in that this wasn’t done already.

But enough of that insanity.

As the Irish head to New York to take on the already bowl eligible Syracuse Orange, we have a slight shakeup in the bowl projections for ND. The Gators in the Gator Bowl is less of a thing while the Utes in the Holiday Bowl is gaining more traction. And... a new player has entered the chat — South Carolina and the month of January.

The Pinstripe Bowl is still an option and has my heart for chaos reasons.
