Notre Dame accepts invitation to Music City Bowl to face LSU
Fighting Irish to play Dec. 30 at LP Field in Nashville, Tennessee.
Dec. 7, 2014
NOTRE DAME, Ind. - For the first time in history, the University of Notre Dame football team is headed to the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl.
Notre Dame (7-5) will meet Southeastern Conference representative LSU (8-4) at 3 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2014, in 69,143-seat LP Field (home of the NFL Tennessee Titans) in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Irish qualify as a representative of the Atlantic Coast Conference in their first year of an agreement that also involves Notre Dame playing five games per season against ACC opponents (some seasons feature four games, others feature six). This marks the 15th different bowl game in which Notre Dame has participated.
Notre Dame falls to USC, 49-14
Malik Zaire led the Irish with 170 yards in loss to USC.
Cody Kessler passed for 372 yards and threw two of his six touchdown passes to George Farmer, leading Southern California to a 49-14 victory over Notre Dame in the 85th edition of the intersectional rivalry Saturday.
Adoree Jackson, Darreus Rogers and Nelson Agholor also caught TD passes in a dynamic first half for the Trojans (8-4), who jumped to a 35-0 lead in the second quarter.
USC easily reclaimed the Jeweled Shillelagh after two straight losses to the Irish, piling up 577 yards against Notre Dame's injury-plagued defense.
Welcome to the Family
Florida transfer and defensive back Cody Riggs feels right at home at Notre Dame.
For Cody Riggs, his University of Notre Dame moment, the moment he knew he was home and that he belonged, didn't happen when he celebrated a breathtaking last-minute victory against Stanford at legendary Notre Dame Stadium. It didn't happen when he soaked in the reverence and awe of the Golden Dome. It didn't happen when he walked into the venerated academic halls where he is enrolled in graduate studies.
It happened when his aunt, Emily Brown, sent a video of his two cousins, Bray (age 4) and Thatcher (age 2), wearing Notre Dame jerseys, cheering for him before the Michigan game.
