What channel is USC vs. Notre Dame on today? Time, TV schedule for week 8 rivalry game

The Jeweled Shillelagh, or the annual battle for it, at least, has lost its luster in 2021.

On one side of the rivalry is USC, which has started the season 3-3 and ultimately fired Clay Helton after a Week 2 loss to Stanford that showed the program had progressed as much as possible under the eighth-year coach. The Trojans have done their best to keep their season together after their dismissal, beating Washington State and Colorado, but they have also lost to Utah and lost their minds to Oregon State.

No. 13 Notre Dame (5-1) has done its part to boost the status of this rivalry, coming off a spot in the college football Playoffs in 2020 and losing only to Cincinnati this season (the Bearcats are now in second place in the AP Top 25). But the Fighting Irish don’t look as strong as in previous seasons, notching three one-possession wins against unranked opponents.

Notre Dame has three straight wins in this series, but those victories aren’t exactly easy. His last two have come by an average of five points. That said, Notre Dame should feel comfortable in the home match; the Irish haven’t lost at home to the Trojans since 2011, in former coach Lane Kiffin’s second year.
