The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 5-1 coming off of the bye and are 7 point favorites over the USC Trojans on Saturday night according to DraftKings Sportsbook. The Irish look like they found some things that worked on the offensive side of the ball against Virginia Tech, and now have had two weeks to build on that success as it welcomes its biggest rival to South Bend.
It’s the Battle for the Jeweled Shillelagh, and 4th one in a row in prime time.
It’s week 8!
