When: Jan. 3, 8 p.m. ET
Who: LSU (10-2) vs. Notre Dame (10-2)
Are all two-loss BCS teams created equal? The Allstate Sugar Bowl may provide an answer. After losing its two biggest showdowns of the season in convincing fashion against Michigan and USC, Notre Dame still earned a BCS bid on the strength of 10 wins against what some felt was a weak schedule. Meanwhile, LSU enters bowl season ranked fourth, ahead of several one-loss teams, but few seem to have any complaints about the Tigers after Les Miles' team survived the SEC schedule.
So will the Fighting Irish seize on an opportunity to prove the critics wrong? Do the Tigers have anything to play for? And which coach is better at getting his team ready for a big game? Sound off on all things Orange Bowl, SportsNation!
