Notre Dame Fan Guide to All 42 Bowl Games

Hyundai Sun Bowl:

No. 18 Stanford vs. North Carolina (2pm ET, CBS)

I shouldn’t have to explain this game, but I will. Root against Stanford. Always.

North Carolina is our friend in this game. Even if Stanford had a disappointing season, they don’t deserve to win a bowl game In fact, they never deserve to win a bowl game. Over the last several years, Stanford has been Notre Dame’s first evil. No matter what they try to do, Stanford always ends up finding out how to beat them.

It’ll bring a smile to everyone’s face watching them lose to UNC. On top of a loss, this will be Christian McCaffrey’s final college game. If Stanford loses, this is a late Christmas present to all Notre Dame fans.
