No. 13 Notre Dame, No. 11 USC have injury concerns

No. 13 Notre Dame, No. 11 USC have injury concerns

Defensively, Notre Dame is allowing 16.8 points and 365.7 yards per contest.

Tune into NewsCenter 16 at 6 for pre-game coverage followed by Countdown to Kickoff at 6:30. This is the first year both are ranked since 2009 when No. 6 USC won at No. 25 Notre Dame (34-27).

Against Boston College, the Irish took advantage of Anthony Brown, who was another first-year starter.

The last time the Irish lost the week after a bye was October 22, 2011 - 31-17 to USC. Williams has not played since Notre Dame's win over Michigan State on September 23.

USC is coming off a narrow victory over Utah. ND is putting up 40 points and 471.3 yards per game behind a rushing attack that averages 308 yards per game. The home team has won the last four meetings in this series and all covered the spread in the process. Three of USC's games have hit the over, while four have hit the under on the point total.

Kickoff between No. 13 Notre Dame and No. 11 USC is scheduled for 7:42 p.m.

3 There are only three Power 5 Conference teams - Notre Dame, Alabama and TCU - among the 65 to rank in the top 30 nationally in both red zone offense and red zone defense. The computer is projecting a 35.4-34.8 Notre Dame victory. While the metrics favor Notre Dame, USC comes in more tested, and we like the Trojans to upset the Irish at home. It also is No. 7 in the country in best percentage of touchdowns scored in the red zone at.808 (21 out of 26, including 20 of 22 with starting quarterback Brandon Wimbush for a.909 figure). Josh Adams is leading the offense with 776 yards and five touchdowns. Notre Dame's only loss came against Georgia in a one-point defeat. With quarterback Sam Darnold completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 2,063 yards and running back Ronald Jones II having rushed for 640 yards while averaging 6.3 yards per carry, USC should have no trouble moving the ball the way it has all season. The Irish have covered in all five wins.

The pendulum needs to start swinging back Notre Dame's way (although it doesn't have to be close tonight).
