Trojans, Irish resume pleasantries

LOS ANGELES -- One of the greatest rivalries in college football will be renewed for the 83rd time Saturday, as USC travels to Notre Dame for the Fighting Irish's first home game at night in 21 years. USC had owned this series, winning eight in a row from 2002 to 2009, but Notre Dame broke through with a win last season at the Coliseum and would like nothing more than to establish a winning streak of its own.
