On Monday, Notre Dame Head Coach Brian Kelly spoke with the media regarding the upcoming Hyundai Sun Bowl in El Paso against The University of Miami. These two teams have not faced off in 20 years, since their fierce rivalry in the late 1980's, but Kelly sounded upbeat about the matchup and coming to the Sun City.
"We are excited about the opportunity to play in the Sun Bowl, one of the older bowls, obviously 77 years. It just has a great following, great name recognition, and certainly Notre Dame versus Miami, a great matchup that has got a lot of people's interest. You might not think of two 7-5 teams getting this much interest, but certainly this matchup brings back memories of the games that were played."
The Sun Bowl will be played Friday, December 31, 12:00pm at the Sun Bowl Stadium.
