Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football Bowl History

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have one of college football's richest traditions as one of the winningest prgrams in history. While postseason play is seemingly a struggle for most teams not located in the South, Notre Dame is no exception with a record hovering near .500 in more than 30 histroic bowl games. That record was hurt badly by nine straight bowl losses from 1994-2006.
