As Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Also the USC Trojans Match at Notre Dame Stadium, the Competition Remains in South Bend on Saturday night.
Notre Dame and USC have played a 87 times since 1926. The Trojans direct, although 46-36-5, the show is led by notre Dame. However, the Fighting Irish have won the previous two games and 3-1 in their past four meetings.
So theybothve had their share of failures and successful over the years. USC are one of the teams in college football that are attempting to get back to glory. Since the NCAA came down for its Reggie Bush scandal on them, the Trojans have been trying to return to the forefront of the college football scene.
Head trainer Clay Helton is under lots of pressure this year. The way I see it, Heltons days are numbered at USC. Unless the Trojans triumph the Pac-12, I really could watch Helton. For a schedule of the cash and their caliber hiring Helton to start with was baffling.
They got the dough to entice a head trainer and moved with Helton. USC have under done in his tenure, although he looks like a great guy and all. Yes, even the Trojans won the. If I remember, the schedule was not difficult and they have dismissed by Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl. Notre Dame are under Brian Kelly, including a visit to the championship in 2012 from Alabama twice to the College Football Playoff.
The USC of older arent getting blown out there, and as such, have not reached their whole potential. Pete Carroll turned them and inherited a program that was shedding. Helton hasnt gotten the most out of the roster and came to talent. The Helton getting rumors will be just heated up by A performance against Notre Dame on Saturday. The oddsmakers think that USC are double-digit underdogs in this one. Head below to our free USC vs. Notre Dame pick.

Notre Dame can get criticized because of the beating they shot against Alabama at the National Championship match back in 2012, and then again last season against Clemson at the semi-final, but the Irish can say they have been there. Helton hasnt realized that his occupation would not be in jeopardy if he attracted the Trojans into the College Football Playoff at his period in Pasadena. They may have had a case in 2017 if they won the Pac-12 Championship, but their easy schedule finally hurt their opportunities. Even the Pac-12 is open up this year without a clear No. 1, so that they have a decent likelihood of winning the summit again.
The Trojans are coming off a loss in a Pac-12 matchup against Washington. Washington grinded a 28-14 win to put the clamps down. Fink passed for just 163 yards with a touchdown and 3 interceptions. USC is anticipated to have Kedon Slovis back after he had to miss a week against Washington.
The freshman has become the most talented QB on the depth chart, but he is just in his early year and have to learn the ropes. Slovis has passed 5 touchdowns and 4 interceptions with 732 yards passing. This may easily be the most difficult matchup his profession after matchups from Utah and BYU to start his school career. Slovis struggled on the street against BYU, as the Trojans fell by a score of 30-27 in overtime. He passed for 281 yards with 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. His interception of the game secured the win .
If Slovis believed the environment at BYU was catchy, just wait until Saturday night at Notre Dame Stadium. The Irish will toss away a harmful defense at Slovis within this particular one. Notre Dame are 39th in the country with 330 yards allowed per game and with allowed just 14.8 points a game, they are rated 13th. With only 183.2 passing yards surrendered average, this is going to be an examination for the freshman at Notre Dame Stadium, that happens to be coming from a concussion.
Notre Dame will be fielding a seasoned and capable signal-caller at Ian Book. Book has passed for 13 touchdowns and 2 interceptions around 65.5% completions. Be aware that Book has faced a couple of good defenses also, together with matchups from Georgia and Virginia. Notre Dame came close against Georgia, but have been finally edged out with a score of 23-17 in Athens on the street. USC are far from being on Georgias degree. Expect Book to lead the Fighting Irish to some two-touchdown triumph on Saturday night to the win and cover.
