No question if this game were being played with Lane Kiffin as head coach, I’d pick Notre Dame. I still think even with USC’s renewed enthusiasm this is going to be a tough game especially if it gets really cold tonight.
That said, I like USC’s chances because the offense is getting better and the defense will not be facing a spread offense. The return of Marqise Lee/Anthony Brown help too.
I’m picking USC to win, 28-27.
