On behalf of its Selection Committee, Florida Citrus Sports’ Chairman Michel Champagne and CEO Steve Hogan announced today that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Florida State Seminoles have been selected to play in this year’s Champs Sports Bowl. Set to take place December 29th from Orlando’s Citrus Bowl Stadium, the game will kick off at 5:30 p.m. and be televised on ESPN.
Notre Dame (8-4) and Florida State (8-4, 5-3 ACC), two of the most recognizable schools in college football, have met six times previous with the Seminoles holding a 4-2 edge. Three of those contests were played in South Bend. The other three games have all been played in the state of Florida, but this will be the first time that a meeting will take place at a stadium in the Sunshine State for a second time. FSU has previously won meetings in Orlando (a neutral-site game in 1994) and in Miami in the ’96 Orange Bowl.Purchase tickets here and check out all information regarding the Champs Bowl as the Fighting Irish get ready to take on the Florida State Seminoles in Orlando, Florida.
