While the No. 13 Irish were off a week ago, permitting quarterback Brandon Wimbush and others to get solid, the No. 11 Trojans enter the diversion stumbled, falling off a nearby 28-27 win against Utah that came down to a fizzled two-point transformation a weekend ago in the Coliseum.

USC: Can the limped Trojans pick themselves off the tangle and influence a playoff to run? Beginning linebacker Porter Gustin has a broken toe and a torn bicep, beginning cautious end Rasheem Green has a lower leg damage, beginning nose handle Josh Fatu is in the blackout convention after an auto crash, and reinforcement nose handle Marlon Tuipulotu is out of the season after back surgery. The cautious front has been destroyed by wounds, held up by a stellar season so distant from linebackers Uchenna Nwosu and Cameron Smith. On the off chance that a season that began with national title trusts closes before the College Football Playoff, it will be a failure. USC can at present keep that way to the playoff bursting at the seams with a win at Notre Dame, a triumph that combined with a Pac-12 title makes a solid playoff contention for the CFP Selection Committee.

Notre Dame: After seven days off, this is the principal amusement in an extend that will characterize the 2017 Notre Dame season. By playing Georgia extreme in a one-point misfortune, Notre Dame earned some credit as a group that can hang with the best in the nation. The Irish have satisfied the notoriety by putting everything in order somewhere else on their timetable and now enter the extend that will characterize whether the 2017 season closes in the playoff or in the Sun Bowl. Notre Dame plays four best 25 groups, Wake Forest and Navy throughout the following six Saturdays. That granulate incorporates excursions to Miami and Stanford and a visit from a surging NC State group one week from now. Going 4-2 appears to be similarly as likely as going 2-4, yet while running the table looks troublesome, it’s certainly feasible. A 11-1 Irish group its exclusive misfortune coming to Georgia has a decent profile for the playoff – obviously the greater part of that is out the window with a misfortune to USC on Saturday night.

The key matchup here is Notre Dame’s ground assault against USC’s beat-in advance. Josh Adams runs hard and is useful for no less than one breakaway run for every diversion. When he enjoys a reprieve they have Deon McIntosh or Dexter Williams prepared to venture in and quarterback Brandon Wimbush to convey the run diversion. It feels like a diversion that could come down to the last belonging, and if it’s the Irish with the ball I like their odds. Pick: Notre Dame – 3.5
