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

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.
