Notre Dame fans react to Cotton Bowl bid, matchup

Notre Dame fans react to Cotton Bowl bid, matchup

The next step to that goal comes December 29, when the third-ranked Irish (12-0) play second-ranked Clemson (13-0) in a CFP semifinal in the Cotton Bowl.

Clemson made Trevor Lawrence the full-time starter over Kelly Bryant, while Ian Book replaced Brandon Wimbush for Notre Dame. The winners meet in the championship game on January 7 in Santa Clara, California.

"We know that was one of our goals in the beginning of the season, and now it's just checked off the list", Irish cornerback Julian Love said.

First of all, I think people need to learn how to spell "Dabo Swinney". It's the first time Notre Dame will play in the Cotton Bowl since New Year's Day 1994.

It's the first time in the five years of the CFP that the field of four contains three unbeaten teams - Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame.

This is Clemson's fourth consecutive College Football Playoff berth.

Which team had a more convincing win?

He struck out 124 in 73 1/3 innings and opposing hitters batted just.160 against him. Cano is owed $120 million and the Mariners could send additional money in the deal.

Ask it of Georgia and Notre Dame or Ohio State and Notre Dame, and see how many votes for the Irish you'll actually get. "We've been on a journey here the last couple years to put our football team back in this position". Go with the team that didn't get blown out. The junior has completed 70 percent of his passes so far this season for 2,468 yards.

For the second straight season, two of the Power Five conferences were left out and for the second straight season it was the Big Ten and Pac-12.

Instead, Georgia was placed ahead of Ohio State because they had good wins (over teams that lost 38-17 to Mizzou and 24-7 to Tennessee) and a close loss to Alabama.

"All they did was punch their ticket into the opportunity in the playoffs to win a national championship, so now it's go time".

Irish head coach Brian Kelly stands in the tunnel prior to Notre Dame's 44-22 victory over Navy on October 27 at SDCCU Stadium in San Diego.

That's a problem - and it may be leading to a fourth precedent that says, "We're just gonna do whatever the hell we want".

The No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners (12-1) will face No. 1 Alabama (13-0) in the Orange Bowl at 8 p.m. December 29 in Miami in a matchup of Heisman Trophy front-runner quarterbacks - Kyler Murray of Oklahoma and the Tide's Tua Tagovailoa.
