Drama building in Los Angeles for ND-USC

Feeling lucky these days. I get to go from one instant classic last week in Columbus to the rematch of another in the Coliseum this Saturday night. Can USC and Notre Dame possibly top the drama Ohio State and Michigan gave us or come close to reprising the '05 edition, which was one of the most dramatic regular-season games ever?

Probably not, but I think it will be close and tight throughout, with USC just surviving. Which brings up the issue of style points. Should they matter here?
