Notre Dame bowl projections following week 3

·1 min read

Notre Dame avoided what would have been another disastrous loss on Saturday as they escaped their home stadium with a 24-17 victory over Cal.  The win was Marcus Freeman’s first as head coach as the Irish are now 1-2 with a trip North Carolina approaching this weekend.

How did the win change where prognosticators have Notre Dame heading this bowl season?  We’ve got a couple different baseball stadiums featured this week while one outlet continues to have the Irish missing a bowl entirely, and other outlets have the season ending in either Texas or Florida.
