Notre Dame (1) v USC Thread - 8pm EST ABC TV. If Notre Dame wins they will play for the National Championship, as unfair as that might seem.

Baylor just pulled out an OT win against Texas Tech, 52 to 45.

That puts Baylor in bowl contention.

Notre Dame's strength of schedule ranks 40th among FBS teams. Yeah, the Irish have beaten Michigan, Stanford, and Oklahoma, but the rest of the schedule has been fairly cushy. (Undefeated Ohio State has the 42nd-ranked schedule.)

Sad part is Matt Barkley is down with a bad shoulder. Makes it easier for the hype-sters, on the one day a year I root for SC.

Whoever ND plays it is about the biggest game of the year for them. The opponent will be playing the game of their lives but for ND its just one more game they have to win..

The new kid is pretty confident USC can beat ND. He's certainly got enough star-quality receivers to target.

I think I can agree with the first sentence, but not the second. Not tonight, anyway. With a national championship game on the line, there's definitely more pressure on ND than on 7-4 USC, which is nowhere to be found in the BCS rankings.

A: They will tell you.

Did I mention that my son graduated from Notre Dame last year? :)

My son marched with the Band of the Fighting Irish for four years, and his time at Notre Dame was wonderful for him, and for us.

My other son graduated from Ohio State last year, and they took down those clods from the State Up North today, so things are going well so far. :)

GO IRISH!

Couple times. Mostly I want SC to lose because they are the second most over-hyped nauseating gang of narcissists in the NCAA. Guess who is "Number One."

Teh best part about having sons graduate from both Notre Dame and Ohio State is that we get to hate Michigan twice a year. And they make it so easy! :)

ND has had trouble with teams with seemingly nothing to play for and therefore no pressure. Since the Holtz era the ND teams seem to not feel any pressure in games like this and come out flat. I think Kelly is changing that mindset but I would not be surprised if they blew it...

I want to see a SEC vs ND Championship game...

Oh yeah! That’s what I want to see too. Alabama vs an undefeated ND. Alabama 48-3.

Then the SEC can secede and form the Premier Division of NCAA football...

If OSU could go to the postseason, they’d be in line for the championship with a USC win. But since they cannot I am neutral on this game.

Should it come to that, not only will Bama embarrass ND, but also, as a peripheral bonus, make a well-deserved mockery of the BCS ranking joke.
