Notre Dame Fighting Irish at USC Trojans on College Football Week 14The USC and Notre Dame are set to face each other on Saturday to see who gets the famous Jeweled Shillelagh, and bookmaker software services wonder who will get the coveted prize.

The Trojans are a very talented team, but unfortunately none of that talent is included in their head coaching, as this season they went 7-4. The offense that USC has averages 33.8 points, as well as 441.5 yards per each game played, and the team has the services of QB Cody Kessler, who was able to complete 69.7% of the passes made with four interceptions and 30 TD’s. Javorius Allen is the onel to lead the Trojans’ game on the ground with 9 TD’s and 1,244 yards, and there are 10 TD’s and 85 interceptions recorded by Nelson Agholor. The Trojans’ defense has 24.6 points allowed, and 4-2.6 yards along with 26 sacks and 20 takeaways.

Hayes Pullard was able to record 84 tackles, there are 66 tackles to Leonard Williams, and 15 tackles for one loss go to Su’a Cravens. Southern Cal are set to have a lot players who will be picked by NFL Draft, but the coaching staff got in the way of the players showing their talent.

So far this season, the Fighting Irish are currently 7-4, as the season’s second half was very upsetting for the team. Their offense had an average of 34.7 points and 453.3 yards per each game played, and QB Everett Golson was leading them – a player who was able to complete 61.1% of all the passes that he made, along with 13 interceptions and 29 TD’s. With five TD’s and 802 yards, Tarean Folston is the one to lead the rushing attack that Notre Dame has, and with 66 catches made, Will Fuller is the team’s top WR. The Irish defense was seriously struggling since they lost the services of Joe Schmidt this season, and the team allowed 385.5 yards for each game played and 27.5 points, with 22 sacks and 22 takeaways. There are 89 tackles to Jaylon Smith, 51 to Elijah Shumate, and 49 to Max Redfield. Problems the team’s kicking game, turning over the ball, and a defense that seemed to have crumbled to pieces, the Irish are apparently in a bit of a pickle.

The Trojans are currently 4-1 ATS after playing a game that they weren’t able to cover, 7-3 ATS in the last 10 games that they played at home, and 1-4 ATS facing a side with a record that is currently on the winning side.
