Notre Dame bowl projections following win over Navy

Where will Notre Dame be headed this postseason?  It seems like the answer to that question is one of two places.  Either out west to take on a Pac-12 opponent in a bowl game the Irish have never participated in before, or to Jacksonville to take on an SEC foe in a game Notre Dame hasn’t played in since the conclusion of Tyrone Willingham’s first season as head coach.

However, there are a couple of others to put into the mix and one or two that we’ll file under the category of “I’ll have what he’s having”.  Check out the latest bowl projections for Notre Dame from the national prognosticators below.
