After nearly knocking off Florida State midway through the season, Notre Dame's 2014 did not wind up going as planned. The Fighting Irish finished 7-5, and will play LSU in the Music City Bowl in Nashville. One of Notre Dame's main issues were the turnovers of Everett Golson. The Irish quarterback threw 14 interceptions and lost eight fumbles in 12 games this season. Head coach Brian Kelly was asked about the quarterback situation heading into the bowl, and he wants to play Golson as well as sophomore Malik Zaire.

LSU was a bit down this year as well, but the Tigers still boast a tenacious defense. They will pose a real test to whichever quarterback plays for the Irish.
