The No. 13 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and USC Trojans meet up in Week 8 at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET and the game will air on NBC. These programs did not play each other last season for the first time since 1945, but both teams had an extra week to prepare for the 2021 version of this matchup.
Notre Dame (5-1) quarterback Jack Coan will continue to operate as the starter for the Irish with backup Tyler Buchner coming in on occasion as the running threat, though the Irish’s No. 1 issue has been on the offensive line. USC (3-3, 2-3 Pac-12) fired their head coach way before it was cool, though the defensive struggles continue as the Trojans rank No. 97 in yards per play allowed against FBS opponents.
