Notre Dame-USC: 10 To 1 Countdown

Notre Dame-USC: 10 To 1 Countdown”

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly believes Martini, a co-starter at the buck linebacker spot alongside junior Te'von Coney, will be able to return for the Irish's next game on October 28 vs. visiting N.C. State, according this quote obtained by Rivals.com reporter Lou Somogyi.

Last season, the Trojans picked up a 45-27 win over the Fighting Irish in the eighth of nine straight wins they had to close out their season.

The last time the Irish lost the week after a bye was October 22, 2011 - 31-17 to USC. Notre Dame has hit the over in four out of six games.

The last time Notre Dame played on October 21 was also against a team from Los Angeles, a 20-17 win versus UCLA in 2006 when Jeff Samardzija caught a 45-yard touchdown pass from Brady Quinn with 27 seconds left. Two of the wins came against top-10 ranked and eventual Rose Bowl champion USC squads: 28-24 in 1989 and the aforementioned 38-10 blowout in 1995.

In the only nonconference matchup on this list, USC and Notre Dame square off for the 86th time in the programs' illustrious histories.

I think Notre Dame might be one of the best teams in the country. Three of USC's games have hit the over, while four have hit the under on the point total. The computer is projecting a 35.4-34.8 Notre Dame victory. Brandon Wimbush is completing 52.3 percent of his passes for 782 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. While the metrics favor Notre Dame, USC comes in more tested, and we like the Trojans to upset the Irish at home. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish ground game is averaging 308 yards per contest, and Josh Adams leads the way with 776 yards and five touchdowns. The Fighting Irish are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games, 3-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. Only Stanford's Bryce Love ranks ahead of him with a 10.27 average (135 carries, 1,387 yards). Defensively, Notre Dame is allowing 16.8 points and 365.7 yards per game. He's seen just 20 carries on the season. The computer projects a 31.6-25.8 Notre Dame victory.
