How’d We Do Last Week?
As you know, I normally feature the most interesting, most wildly inaccurate, and most accurate takes for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish from the previous week. Let’s get started!
Cubsfansince1957 with the SHUTOUT CALL!
THANK GOD this was wrong NDALLDAY
Topical TheChristmasDash. Kenny Minchey is going to be a DUUDE. If you haven’t watched his senior highlights, stop what you are doing, and go do it now.
And now onto the takes for this week’s matchup between the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the USC Trojans!
Notre Dame wins the Special teams battle
Make no mistake....Special teams is going to play a huge role in this game. Brian Mason needs to get something big in this one....flip the field, block a kick/punt, recover a muffed punt...something. Any opportunity to restrict the possessions for Caleb Williams will be key. Mason has been nothing short of brilliant all year and he will bring his big guns in this one.
50+ yard slip screen for a touchdown
The screens have been there all year....but haven’t executed at a high level (really any level tbh). The ghost of Tony Jones Jr. makes his appearance against an undisciplined defense and a RB (pick your poison) goes untouched into the end zone.

The late touchdown catch from @TonnJoness emphatically seals ND’s victory over USC and ensures 12-0 @NDFootball is headed to the playoffs. #ND12PlaysofChristmas pic.twitter.com/lHWU6asEEQ
