AP Source: Notre Dame headed to Pinstripe Bowl

Updated:

A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Notre Dame plans to accept a bid to the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not become official, says Notre Dame officials have informed bowl organizers that the Fighting Irish will play in the Dec. 28 game in New York against a team from the American Athletic Conference.

CBS.com first reported Notre Dame's decision.

The Fighting Irish were left without a pre-arranged bowl destination this season. Notre Dame's final choice came down to the Hawaii Bowl or the Pinstripe Bowl.

The Fighting Irish (8-4) will play either Houston (8-4) or Rutgers (5-6). Rutgers must beat USF on Saturday to become bowl-eligible.
