History of the Notre Dame – USC rivalry
Saturday night marks the 90th meeting between Notre Dame and USC. ABC57’s Vahid Sadrzadeh takes a look back at the origins of the rivalry.
The rivalry between the two teams dates back to 1926 when Knute Rockne led the Irish to a 13-12 win over USC.
Since that inaugural game, there have been many notable games with national championship implications.
The green jersey game in 1977, number 1 vs number 1 in 1988 and the Bush Push in 2005.
That game sparked a resurgence in the bitter rivalry.
With a potential college football playoff berth for the Irish hanging in the balance, Saturday’s game is going to be an exciting one.
Notre Dame leads the series on the field 47–37–5.
