Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:
Huge game this week, perhaps you’ve heard?
USC Game Watch!
Saturday, October 21st, 4:30 pm (Pacific Time)
Well, they don’t get much bigger than this. The #11 Trojans of So. Cal. travel back to the house that Rockne built to face our #13 Irish. ESPN’s matchup page power index has the Irish as 78.3% likely to take this one, and current Vegas odds give the Irish the game by 3.5, just a hair over the usual home advantage bonus. Comparative stats are really close for this game. Notre Dame has an edge over USC in Scoring Offense (#13 vs. #36), Run Offense (#5 vs. #53) and Red Zone Conversions (#18 vs. #74). The Trojans have an edge over the Irish in Passing Offense (#19 vs. #116) and Sacks (#7 vs #58). So it looks like this one will be decided based on who steps up on defense and blunts the opponent’s strength. USC is beatable, and this game is in our house. If you’re local, you definitely want to experience the energy of a victory over USC surrounded by your local ND Family! Whether your an alumni, parent of a current (or former) student, or just love Notre Dame, you’re welcome to join us! Here’s how to find us: Social Tap – Downtown San Diego adjacent to Petco Park • Crust Pizzeria – Carmel Valley • Rosati’s Pizza Pub – Vista
