The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are set to play its 4th prime time game in a row tonight when it faces off against the USC Trojans in the Battle for the Jeweled Shillelagh.
Forget everything else you think you know about the college football season and Notre Dame’s place in all of it — none of it means a thing today. This is Notre Dame’s biggest rival, there’s a wonderful rivalry trophy on the line, and Caleb Williams and his painted fingernails are on the other side of the field.
WHEN, WHERE, AND HOW TO WATCH
When: Saturday, October 14 @ 7:30 PM EST
Where: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Indiana
How to watch: NBC and Peacock
