USC v. Notre Dame

A top five rivalry. The country’s greatest non-conference rivalry.

Notre Dame is getting a lot of hype. It feels a lot like the attention paid to Oklahoma before last year’s title game. Notre Dame cannot beat USC, only USC can beat USC. Notre Dame simply does not have USC’s talent. USC has certainly shown they are capable of losing focus and intensity. However, I think all the hype over Notre Dame’s chances by the pundits are actually a good thing. It will help focus USC…just like last year’s BCS title game.

USC 45 — ND 21
