Notre Dame Fan Guide to All 42 Bowl Games

26 of 41

Birmingham Bowl:

South Florida vs. South Carolina (2pm ET, ESPN)

This will be the last time South Florida will play before new head coach Charlie Strong joins the team. Yes, most Notre Dame fans would have loved to hire Strong as the Irish’s next defensive coordinator. But it didn’t happen, and now we wish him the best in South Florida.

This game doesn’t mean much to Notre Dame. If Strong was coaching it would be a different story, but he’s not so it’s not. If anything, give this game a view just to see how well the team Strong will take over looks.

Maybe you’re upset that Notre Dame and Charlie Strong didn’t even have contract talks. If you’re one of those people, watch this game to criticize how bad South Florida is.
