Notre Dame Head Coach Brian Kelly and Miami Interim Head Coach Jeff Stoutland addressed the media together today. They say they share the excitement for the matchup of classic rivals and are glad that it will happen at a venue as well respected as the Sun Bowl.
"You could arguably say that [the Sun Bowl] will have as much appeal, other than the national championship game, as any," said Kelly.
Both coaches used the ticket sell out record as proof for the excitement and national appeal this game has. The Irish and Hurricanes play for the 24th time, but the first since 1990, on Dec. 31.
