Behind the mike
In case you were wondering, ESPN's broadcast crew for Sunday's game will be Mark Jones doing play-by-play with Bob Davie handling color duties. Stacy Dales will be the sideline reporter.
For Davie, the trip to Shreveport comes on the 10th anniversary of bringing Notre Dame here. Davie was the Fighting Irish's coach when Notre Dame lost 27-9 to LSU in the 1997 Independence Bowl.
Davie figures to enjoy this trip a little more.
