Texas and Notre Dame have faced off only 12 times in history, and only three times in bowl games. But one college football insider is getting word that a new meeting between the college football powerhouses could be in the works.
According to CBS Sports insider Dennis Dodd, he is “hearing a lot of Texas-Notre Dame buzz” for a bowl game this December. But at 7-5, Texas won’t be competing the Cotton Bowl like in years past.
Instead, Dodd is hearing that the Longhorns and the Irish could face off in the Camping World Bowl on December 28.
It would be the second appearance by Notre Dame in the bowl game, and the first ever for Texas.

The two teams last faced off in 2016 as the second part of a home-and-home series. Texas won that game in Austin, snapping a five-game losing streak to Notre Dame that dated back to 1971.
They’ve played each other three times in the Cotton Bowl Classic, with Notre Dame winning two of those three games. Two of those wins crowned a national champion.
It would certainly be one of the most compelling Camping World Bowls ever. But it won’t be the kind of finish that either program really wanted.
