USC has a fierce pass rush ranked fourth in the nation racking up a total of 42 sacks. Junior DE Morgan Breslin has accounted for 11.5 of the total, 4.5 coming from the last three games. The pass rush should keep Golson on his toes and force him out of the pocket.
Senior Safety T.J. McDonald anchors the Trojan backfield. This season McDonald has collected 84 tackles, 2 interceptions, and one sack. The Senior is expected to be a high draft pick in next year’s NFL Draft.
Prediction: Notre Dame 25 USC 20
