    I expect that Stanford will also fill out the other half of ND’s schedule/ In years USC doesnt come to South Bend; Stanford will and in years when ND doesnt travel to Southern Cal, they will continue to spend Thanksgiving Saturday in Palo Alto.

    Thank you for continuing the number one college football rivalry. The season would not be complete without this legendary matchup.

      On behalf of all the fans of Ohio State or Michigan; all the fans of Auburn or Alabama; all the fans of Florida and Florida State; all the fans of Oklahoma and OkState; and all the fans of Stanford and Cal all I can say is “yeah, right”.

      The fact is that ND isnt even the biggest rival on the USC schedule. UCLA is, So let’s not get carried away with the hyperbole.

      It is clear, Bill, you’re not an SC fan…for the number ONE game of the year is ALWAYS Notre Dame, much to the chagrin of Bruin fans…. with UCLA in at number ONE.2….but that is not to take away from any other of the great rivalries for they too help make college football what it can be…. nor from UCLA…. The Regional Rivalry is what gives SC-Irish it’s extra boast…

    I agree one of the biggest rivalries in all of college football. More so than UCLA even. The 2005 ND SC game? You don’t see that kind of intensity outside of rivalries like this. Go Trojans.
