Bragging rights and the jeweled shillelagh are on the line today as interim USC head coach Ed Orgeron leads his Trojans against Brian Kelly and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Both teams enter the game with four wins and two losses and both are attempting to jump start their disappointing season with a much needed win over their bitter rivals.
The game will be broadcast live nationally on NBC, which carries all Notre Dame home games. Dan Hicks and Mike Mayock will have the call with Alex Flanagan on the sidelines.
As always, Pete Arbogast calls the game locally on USC flagship 710 KSPN in Los Angeles, and he’ll be joined with former Trojan John Jackson with color and USC social media guru Jordan Moore as the sideline reporter. Nationally, you can catch the broadcast from IMG College Sports on both SIRIUS and XM Satellite Radio (channel 129) with Don Criqui and Allen Pinkett with Jeff Jeffers covering the sideline.
