Irish lunch links: ND vs. SEC

Notre Dame's upcoming series with Georgia in 2017 and 2019 is a huge national matchup that will also mark the Irish's first regular-season meeting with an SEC opponent since 2005, when they played Tennessee.

Why is this notable? The Irish have played current SEC teams only 44 times, according to the Elkhart Truth's Rachel Terlep, which is far less than the school's matchups against the Big Ten (376), the ACC (193) and the Pac-12 (147).

Notre Dame is 26-18 against current SEC teams, though it is just 3-5 against the league in bowl games.
