EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Notre Dame and Miami have accepted invitations to meet in the Sun Bowl on Dec. 31, giving the game a marquee matchup between two teams with plenty of history.
Both teams will take 7-5 records into the 77th annual game.
The game will mark the 24th meeting between the schools, but the first since 1990. It was announced in July that the schools were renewing their spirited and often fierce regular-season series with three games beginning in 2012 at Soldier Field in Chicago.
Notre Dame leads the all-time series 15-7-1, though the two schools have never met in a bowl.
