ORLANDO, Fla. - Notre Dame receiver Miles Boykin lived up to Brian Kelly's expectations. The Fighting Irish's coach told the junior during a practice leading up to Monday's Citrus Bowl against LSU that Boykin was going to win the MVP trophy. Boykin produced not only one of the top plays of this bowl season but one of the more memorable catches in Notre Dame bowl history. He made a dynamic one-handed grab and raced down the sideline for a 55-yard touchdown with 1:28 remaining to give the 14th-ranked Fighting Irish a 21-17 victory over the No. 17 Tigers. The win by Notre Dame (10-3) is its first in a New Year's Day bowl since the 1994 Cotton Bowl against Texas A&M and snaps a nine-game skid in January postseason games.
