Watch Gary Klein and Lindsey Thiry preview USC vs. Notre Dame

USC beat writer Gary Klein and blogger Lindsey Thiry preview the Trojans' matchup against the Fighting Irish

USC plays Notre Dame on Saturday at the Coliseum.

The Trojans fell to 7-4 overall and 6-3 in the Pac-12 Conference after a 38-20 defeat by UCLA last Saturday at the Rose Bowl

The loss knocked USC out of contention for the Pac-12 South title.

Notre Dame is 7-4. After starting the season on a six-game win streak, the Fighting Irish have lost four of their last five, including a 31-28 defeat by Louisville last Saturday in South Bend, Ind.
