Fans who watch Notre Dame football have seen few seasons like 2014. The team started strong, had legitimate playoff hopes mid-year but then had an epic collapse. Those who watch LSU football had an opposite experience: humbled at the beginning but hitting their stride at the end. Today both fanbases will watch the Music City Bowl to see whose momentum carries into the bowl game. If you’re not near a TV, you can watch Notre Dame vs LSU game live online free Music City Bowl live stream as well.
Kickoff for the 2014 Music City Bowl on ESPN with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and LSU Tigers is scheduled for 3pm EST / Noon PST.
The 7-5 Notre Dame football team won its first six games of the season. That spotless record included a 31-0 shutout over rival Michigan Wolverines and a last-second win over the Stanford Cardinal. Quarterback Everett Golson even gave Notre Dame hope of beating Florida State and Jameis Winston when the Seminoles were ranked No. 2. But a last-second Irish touchdown was called backed for a penalty, FSU won 31-27, and Notre Dame entered a downward spiral that saw them lose five of their last six games. As we watch Notre Dame football online Music City Bowl free live stream or on TV, will the 6-0 or the 1-5 Irish show up?
While Notre Dame hopes for the former, fans will watch LSU Tigers football today hoping their second-half performance carries over. Coach Les Miles is fortunate that LSU is a young team as we watch Music City Bowl online free. As such, he’ll be able to help them avoid performances like the Auburn and Arkansas debacles. Against Arkansas, the LSU Tigers lost 17-0 after earning just 123 total yards of offense. In their 41-7 loss to Auburn, LSU didn’t convert a single third-down.
But sophomore QB Anthony Jennings and freshman running back Leonard Fournette proved malleable this year. Though Jennings proved inconsistent at times, Fournette started slow against Wisconsin but finished the year with 891 rushing yards, 146 of which came in the last game of the season. The Notre Dame defense struggled at times against the run, so if Fournette stays hot from that Texas A&M game, watch Music City Bowl online free or on TV and expect to see a big performance from LSU’s freshman phenom.
