The University of Notre Dame football team (9-3) will conclude the 2023 season in the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl against Oregon State (8-4) in El Paso, Texas, on Friday, December 29 at 2 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on CBS.

The game will mark the 42nd bowl appearance in program history and the Irish have compiled a 20-21 overall record in postseason games. Notre Dame and Oregon State will be meeting for the third time – with the previous two meetings also coming in bowl games. The Beavers earned wins over the Irish in the 2001 Fiesta Bowl and 2004 Insight Bowl.

Notre Dame finished the season ranked 15th by the Associated Press, 16th in the coaches poll and 16th in the final College Football Playoff ranking. Oregon State is 21st in the AP, 22nd in the coaches poll and 19th in the playoff ranking.

Notre Dame will be competing in the Sun Bowl for the second time. The Irish defeated Miami FL 33-17 on December 31, 2010, in their previous appearance.  Of note, that matchup against the Hurricanes set the Sun Bowl attendance record at 54,021.
