    The No. 14 Notre Dame Fighting Irish will host the USC Trojans in South Bend on Saturday in a rivalry-game featuring two teams heading in opposite directions.

    The Fighting Irish (5-1) followed up a tough loss to Clemson a couple weeks back with a 41-24 win over Navy last week. The Notre Dame defense was able to contain the Midshipmen’s option attack, while RB C.J. Prosise broke loose for 129 yards on 21 carries and accounted for three touchdowns. It was Prosise’s second game with three rushing touchdowns. He is the second Irish player in the past 100 years to accomplish that feat in the same season.

    The Trojans (3-2) have made headlines all week long with the dismissal of now-former head coach Steve Sarkisian. Now Clay Helton is in charge as interim coach yet again and has to turn a team around that is in total disarray after having College Football Playoff hopes at the beginning of this season. The latest on-field setback for USC came last week when the Trojans fell 17-12 to Washington at home. Tre Madden did his best to bail out a struggling Trojan offense rushing the ball 17 times for 120 yards, but was unable to find the end zone. Cody Kessler hopes to turn the page on his performance (16-for-29, 156 yards, 2 INTs) and focus on building his NFL Draft stock back up with a strong showing against the Irish like he had last season (six touchdown passes, record for Notre Dame opp.)

    The Battle of the Jeweled Shillelagh dates back to 1926 and Saturday’s matchup will be the 87th meeting between the rivals. Notre Dame leads the all-time series 45-36-5 and holds a 24-14-1 edge when the game is played in South Bend. The Trojans have won 10 of the last 13 meetings, but the Irish have taken three of the last five.

    Prediction

    On the road … led by an interim coach … the week after falling to Washington. USC is battling too many forces to get out of South Bend with a much-needed win this weekend. Do the Trojans harbor enough talent to defeat Notre Dame? Absolutely. But this is one of those games that transcend the simplicity of unit vs. unit matchups.

    The Irish will be better at the line of scrimmage, with Tuerk’s absence being felt immediately. While Kessler will perform heroically for a spell, he’ll eventually succumb under the weight of the pressures and hurries. Prosise and Day will be the offensive and defensive MVPs, respectively, helping earn payback for last November’s five-touchdown loss in the Coliseum.

    Game Notes

    • Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer has both run and passed for a TD is each of Notre Dame’s last three games. It is the longest such streak since Rick Mirer did it in four consecutive games in 1991.
    • USC has yet to win the “time of possession” battle in 2015. The Trojans have averaged 25:09 time of possession through five games this season.
    • Notre Dame is 10-2 all-time in night games at Notre Dame Stadium, winning four consecutive since a 2011 loss to USC. The 2015 season joins 1988 as the only years with two home night games for the Irish.
