Capital One Orange Bowl:
No. 6 Michigan vs. No. 11 Florida State (8pm ET, ESPN)
This is the second-biggest headache for all Notre Dame fans during the bowl season. If you consider yourself a Irish fan, wyou don’t even want to watch Michigan and Florida State.
If you’re looking for a team to root for, you pick Florida State. But even cheering for the Seminoles is considered a sin in the book of Notre Dame fandom.
It was enjoyable watching Michigan lose to Ohio State and be eliminated from the College Football Playoff. But could the bowl committee make Irish fan’s lives any less enjoyable during the Orange Bowl? It isn;t like you don’t want to watch this game. It’s the first major bowl of the season and everyone will tune in. Just crack a beer and try not to break anything.
