Notre Dame, FSU in Champs Sports Bowl

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Florida State will play Notre Dame in Champs Sports Bowl Dec. 29 at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

The Seminoles (8-4), representing the Atlantic Coast Conference, are making their third appearance in the Champs. FSU beat Wisconsin 42-13 in the 2008 Champs and beat Penn State in 1990 when it was known as the Blockbuster Bowl and playing in Miami.

FSU is looking for its fourth consecutive bowl victory.

The Irish (8-4) are making their first trip to Orlando and is looking for its second consecutive bowl win after beating Miami in the Sun Bowl last season.

The Champs is normally a matchup of ACC and Big East schools, but has the option of selecting the independent Irish (8-4) one time over the life of the current four-year contract.
