BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU's postseason bowl game is now finalized.

LSU (8-4, 4-4 SEC) will take on Notre Dame (7-5) in the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee. This will mark the first time that LSU has played in this bowl, and it will also mark the first time LSU has played in Nashville since 2010 against Vanderbilt.

The last time that these teams faced each other was 2007 in the Sugar Bowl. LSU won that game by a score of 41-14, setting the bowl game record between the two teams to 2-0 in favor of LSU, but tying the overall series between the two teams at 5 wins each.

“We are delighted to be heading to Nashville for the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl,” LSU vice chancellor and director of athletics Joe Alleva said. “This is a fantastic bowl destination against the historic Notre Dame football program. We are excited about the opportunity to bring our incredible Tiger fans and football program to the great city of Nashville for what should be one of the most attractive matchups of the bowl season.”
 
LSU will be making its school-record 15th straight bowl appearance and 46th overall. The Tigers are 23-21-1 overall in bowl games, which includes a 6-3 mark under Miles.

The Music City Bowl will take place Tuesday, December 30 at 2:00 p.m.
