The University of Notre Dame football team has a few more days to wait to find out where it will be playing in a bowl game this season. The Irish are 10-2 and ranked 10th in the latest BCS Standings – making the team eligible for one of the at-large berths in the Bowl Championship Series.

The next news coming out of the program will be this Friday, when head coach Charlie Weis holds a press conference at 12 noon. The team will also holds its annual banquet on Friday – and Fighting Irish All-Access will be there to provide full coverage and a complete report of the festivities on Saturday.
