Zaxby’s Heart of Dallas Bowl:

Army vs. North Texas (12pm ET, ESPN)

The only Independent team to even consider rooting for this bowl season is BYU. Sorry Army, you don’t make the cut. Notre Dame fans shouldn’t be too optimistic about North Texas pulling off a win, but we can hope.

Army has a lot of momentum coming off their victory over Navy. So, that means Notre Dame fans have an even bigger reason to cheer for North Texas. Like Navy, it’s a respectful rivalry. These two teams represent more than football, and every Irish fan understands that. When you’re repping that North Texas jersey you found on Amazon, don’t forget who you’re hoping loses.

It’ll be nice to see Navy and Army lose this bowl season. But if Army begins to pull away, it’s not a bad thing to crack a smile.
