Notre Dame Football: Learning to Love the Camping World Bowl

Your Notre Dame Fighting Irish are headed to Orlando to play the Iowa State Cyclones in the Camping World Bowl. Search your feelings; you know it to be true.

A confluence of factors including the peculiarities of bowl conference tie-ins, a glut of 10+ win teams, and an aquatic abomination in Ann Arbor have the Irish on the outside looking in this year. It’s disappointing, but life often is; sometimes you have to make the best of a bad situation.
