Notre Dame’s official status as a bowl team may have cause a more focused look at their postseason options. The Holiday Bowl against Utah really seems to be the favorite pick here, but there are still some wildcards with the Duke’s Mayo Bowl and Reliaquest Bowl as selections.
My favorite prediction, however, is from SI’s Richard Johnson. The former SBN college football writer has Notre Dame headed to Birmingham to take on Liberty in a Tuesday NOONER. I finally met Mr. Johnson on Saturday up in Notre Dame’s press box — so he is a real person. I’m not really sure I can say the same thing about that bowl projection though.
