USC Hosts Notre Dame in Classic Intersectional Rivalry

USC welcomes Notre Dame to the Coliseum on Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend for the 86th rendition of the greatest intersectional rivalry in college football.
Both teams, with identical 7-4 records, are looking to bounce back from tough losses last week and get it position for the post-season. It is USC’s 1,200th football game. The Trojans have lost just 3 times in their last 12 meetings with the Irish, but those losses all came in the past 4 seasons, including the last 2 seasons and the last 2 times the game was in Los Angeles. This is only the 12th time that neither team has been ranked going into the game (Notre Dame holds the upper hand in those meetings). For the first time ever, FOX will broadcast the USC-Notre Dame game. USC head coach Steve Sarkisian should be wary: only 2 Trojan coaches have won their debut games against the Irish. The contest is a battle between schools with perhaps the country’s most glorious gridiron heritages. The winner gets year-long possession of the jeweled Shillelagh. Both teams have faced Stanford (close wins) and Arizona State (stunning losses) this year. It is the 50th and 40th anniversaries of USC’s famous comeback victories over Notre Dame in 1964 and 1974 (USC A.D. Pat Haden, who spent 12 years handling color on Irish telecasts, was a Trojan hero in the 1974 game,).

UCLA Rolls Past USC

Brett Hundley passed for 326 yards and 3 touchdowns and rushed for another score, leading No. 9 UCLA past No. 19 USC 38-20 on Saturday night for the Bruins’ third straight victory in the annual crosstown showdown. Devin Lucien, Thomas Duarte and Eldridge Massington caught scoring passes as the Bruins (9-2, 6-2 Pac-12) confirmed their Los Angeles supremacy and closed in on the Pac-12 South title with a one-sided romp over their biggest rivals at a festive Rose Bowl.

USC Goes to UCLA

The 84th renewal of the nation’s most famous crosstown rivalry occurs Saturday when No. 24 USC travels to the Rose Bowl to face No. 11 UCLA for a primetime nationally televised clash on ABC. Troy needs a victory over the Bruins (plus a loss by Arizona State) to win the Pac-12 South Division and advance to the Pac-12 Championship Game (there are no other scenarios that are in Troy’s favor), while UCLA needs to defeat the Trojans and then Stanford to get there (there’s also a way for the Bruins to advance by finishing tied for first at 6-3 with multiple teams).

Agholor, Kessler Propel USC Past Cal

Nelson Agholor caught a career-high 16 passes for 216 yards and two touchdowns, and Cody Kessler passed for 371 yards and four scores in Southern California’s 38-30 victory over California on Thursday night. George Farmer and Randall Telfer also caught TD passes for the Trojans (7-3, 6-2 Pac-12), who beat their upstate rivals for the 11th straight time. Agholor and Kessler shredded Cal’s porous pass defense while USC jumped to an early 31-2 lead before holding on to its fourth win in five games.

USC Hosts Cal in Thursday Night Game

Coming off a dominant win at Washington State and then a much-needed bye, USC now plays just its second-ever non-Thanksgiving/non-bowl Thursday game in the Coliseum when it hosts long-time foe California on Trojan Family Weekend. The game will air live in primetime on ESPN. The Trojans have won 70% of their Thursday games. Because the game is on a school day, on-campus tailgating and parking will not be allowed, but there are many alternatives available for fans (see This is USC’s 101st meeting with California, the team it has played more than any opponent. Troy has not lost to the Golden Bears since 2003 (and not at home since 2000).
