Notre Dame is 16-17 all-time in bowl games including a 2-2 mark under Kelly. The program at one point held the nation's best winning percentage in the sport's annual post-season pairings, winning 13 of their first 19 bowl appearances following a 24-21 Cotton Bowl victory over Texas A&M to conclude the 1993 season.
A nine-game bowl losing steak ensued, one ended by former head coach Charlie Weis on Christmas Eve 2008 when his Irish ripped Hawaii, 49-21 in the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl.
Members of the SEC, LSU finished the 2014 regular season 8-4 with its three best wins occurring against Wisconsin (Aug. 30) and Ole Miss (Oct. 25), and Texas A&M (Nov. 27). The Tigers lost to Mississippi State, Auburn, Alabama, and Arkansas.
Kelly will speak with the media Sunday night at 6:15 p.m. (ET) to discuss the matchup and his program's bowl preparations.
