Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl:
Nebraska vs. No. 21 Tennessee (3:30pm ET, ESPN)
This game features two teams that had strong starts to the season and terrible ends. At one point, Tennessee and Nebraska looked like College Football Playoff contenders. That didn’t last long, and now these two teams will play in the Music City Bowl.
There’s no specific meaning in this game for the Irish. All this game is, is a way to watch solid football between two top teams. It’ll be one last chance for Tommy Armstrong Jr. to make a statement for the NFL. No matter which college football team you root for, Armstrong is a player you like.
The best of the bottom play in this game. It may not be the Rose Bowl, but there will be entertainment in this showdown.
