Quick hit post as it seems tonight will help in determining where the Irish end up in the bowls. I stated previously that the Sun Bowl would be the likely destination for a 6-6 Irish. Well, it seems there are some goofy bowl rules that don’t allow bowls with conference tie-ins take a 6-6 at large team if there is a conference team that has seven wins. If my explanation makes your head spin, maybe this will help.
In short, if Louisville beats Rutgers, the Irish could be Sun Bowl bound. If not, these are the other bowls we have been projected for:
Texas Bowl (Houston) vs. Rice
Hawaii Bowl vs. Hawaii
Poinsetta Bowl vs. BYU
