Notre Dame Fan Guide to All 42 Bowl Games

Gildan New Mexico Bowl:

New Mexico vs. UTSA (2pm ET, ESPN)

Hey, remember when New Mexico and UTSA meant anything to Notre Dame? No, me neither. If anything, fans should root for UTSA just because they’re the road team. New Mexico is playing this bowl game on their home turf.

If you like underdogs, UTSA is the perfect team to root for. This is the first time in program history UTSA became bowl eligible. The former LSU assistant, Frank Wilson, is the only reason to consider rooting against UTSA. As we all know, LSU and Notre Dame don’t have the best friendship. Even if Wilson never did anything significant to effect Notre Dame, it’s still a blow to his resume knowing he was at one time a Tiger.

The battle of the Looney Toons will be the second bowl game we get to watch. If anything, we’ll all get a laugh every time the Roadrunners and Lobos appear on the screen.
