NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Notre Dame will try to end its late-season slide when it faces No. 22 LSU on Dec. 30 in the Music City Bowl.

Notre Dame (7-5) looked like a College Football Playoff contender earlier this year when it won its first six games. But it closed the regular season on a four-game skid as injuries decimated its defense.

LSU (8-4) has lost two of its last three games but closed the regular season with a 23-17 victory over Texas A&M. The Tigers were 23rd in the CFP standings released Sunday.

It will mark the first time these two schools have faced each other since LSU trounced Notre Dame 41-14 in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 3, 2007.

The Music City Bowl is sponsored by Franklin America Mortgage.
