Notre Dame Fan Guide to All 42 Bowl Games

St. Petersburg Bowl:

Miami (Ohio) vs. Mississippi State (11am ET, ESPN)

When we were all hoping to get the ESPN update saying Notre Dame has fired Brian Kelly, some analysts were looking for replacements for the Notre Dame coach. One of the top choices for the Irish would’ve been Mississippi State coach, Dan Mullens.

It looks like Mullens wants to stay at Mississippi State for now, which isn’t a bad thing if Brian Kelly is getting another chance in South Bend. For Fighting Irish fans, watch for Miss. State to have a big game. If Mullens was a possibility for the Irish this offseason, he could be next year.

Even if he’s not, he’s a coach on the rise in college football. This could be a breakout game for the Bulldogs.
