The Notre Dame–USC rivalry resumes Saturday night in South Bend, with the 3–2 Trojans playing their first game after Steve Sarkisian’s firing. The No. 14 Irish continue working to overcome key early-season injuries as they vie for this year's Jeweled Shillelagh trophy. The Trojans present problems with their speed on offense, with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Adoree' Jackson serving as dangerous targets for Cody Kessler. Notre Dame’s C.J. Prosise has been outstanding in recent weeks and will pace the Irish on the ground. 

USC beat Notre Dame 49–14 last season.
