The Notre Dame Fighting Irish will play the USC Trojans on Saturday night at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 8-3 this season after they defeated Boston College by a score of 44-0 in their last game. Notre Dame held BC to 173 total yards and forced five turnovers in the win. The Notre Dame offense is averaging 31 points per game with 189.2 passing yards per game and 191.2 rushing yards per game. Drew Pyne has thrown for 1,703 yards, 19 touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Fighting Irish this season. Audric Estime has rushed for 782 yards and 11 scores, while Michael Mayer has caught 59 passes for 711 yards and seven touchdowns for Notre Dame. The Notre Dame defense is giving up 20.3 points per game and 317.2 yards per game.

The USC Trojans are 10-1 (8-1) this season after they defeated UCLA by a score of 48-45 in their last game. USC gained 649 total yards and forced four turnovers in the win. The USC offense is averaging 42.9 points per game with 330.8 passing yards per game and 182.2 rushing yards per game. Caleb Williams has thrown for 3,480 yards, 33 touchdowns, and three interceptions, while also rushing for 316 yards and seven touchdowns for the Trojans this season. Austin Jones has rushed for 455 yards and five touchdowns, while Jordan Addison has caught 51 passes for 765 yards and eight scores for USC. The USC defense is allowing 26.3 points per game and 405 yards per game.

Notre Dame is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games on grass and 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 road games. The over is 5-0 in Notre Dame’s last 5 games. USC is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The over is 5-0 in USC’s last 5 games. The home team is 7-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

USC continues their quest to reach the College Football Playoff and needs to get past Notre Dame in this rivalry game. USC has one of the best offenses in college football, but Notre Dame has also been scoring a lot of points in recent games. The difference in this game will be the USC defense and if they can get off of the field. I like the over in this game due to that poor USC defense.
