No. 15 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (10-2) come to sunny Orlando to take on tough Big 12 representative Iowa State Cyclones (7-5) for a Saturday afternoon matchup at Camping World Stadium in the Camping World Bowl. This will be the first time the football programs have ever faced each other, though both schools have been around for at least a century.
Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book was steady, passing for 2,787 yards, 33 touchdowns and six interceptions, with 516 rushing yards and four additional scores. Tight end Chase Claypool needs 109 receiving yards to achieve an impressive 1,000-yard season. The big, fast Irish defense is ranked No. 21 in the country and makes its money locking down receivers and taking away big plays.
Iowa State is a classic case of a team being better than its record indicates and could surprise in its third-consecutive bowl appearance under head coach Matt Campbell. The Cyclones’ five losses were by total of 21 points, with one-point losses to Iowa and (College Football Playoff entrant) Oklahoma and a two-point loss to Baylor. Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy passed for 3,760 yards, 27 touchdowns, and nine picks on a 66.3% passing percentage.
Expect a game that will be closer than it would appear on paper.

How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “It’s practically magic.”
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels. While select NFL and college football games (on Fox, FS1, and FS2) are no longer on Sling, you can still catch Fox games with AirTV.

Camping World Bowl: Why it matters
Iowa State’s aerial attack will surely test Notre Dame’s physical pass defense in a matchup of strength vs. strength. Brock Purdy has to be able to get the ball to first team All-Big 12 tight end Charlie Kolar and underrated wide receiver Deshaunte Jones, who had 72 catches for 832 yards and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Tarique Milton is the big-play threat for the Cyclones, averaging 20.9 yards per reception.
To boot, Purdy can also run the ball himself.
Notre Dame has an edge with overall team depth, so going toe-to-toe won’t be the best idea—but big plays can keep the Cyclones in it until the end.
