All eyes turn to Hollywood Saturday night as the long time rivals Notre Dame Fighting Irish battle the reeling USC Trojans. These two programs have engaged in some historic games throughout their rivalry. Usually, one or both of these teams are highly ranked and this game has national title implications. This year is no different, but it has bucked the recent trend of USC being the team that is ranked.
The Irish have put together a remarkable run in 2012 and a win over USC would propel them into the BCS Championship. The only thing that stands in their way to glory is a USC team that went into this season ranked #1, but have had several disappointing losses and have put their head coach’s job in jeopardy. While USC may not be as deep with talent due to scholarship reductions, they have some dangerous weapons on offense that could give the stout Irish defense all they can handle. Read Full Story »
With Alabama failing to win last week against Texas A&M, the door opened for Kansas State and Oregon to play in the BCS Championship Game. Both the Wildcats and the Ducks have hard conference games this week, with K-State playing Baylor and the Stanford Cardinals traveling up to Eugene and facing off against the high-flying Ducks offense. Both games will be a challenge and it wouldn’t shock anybody if one or both of these teams were upset.
Baylor is looking more and more like a trap game to me for Kansas State, but Stanford will be hungry with Rose Bowl dreams and will attempt to stymie the rushing and passing attack of the Ducks. Read Full Story »

The nation’s eyes will once again be treated to images of Touchdown Jesus and fighting leprechauns as #17 Stanford comes to South Bend to tangle with the #7 Fighting Irish. Stanford won a shootout last week with Arizona 54-48, while Notre Dame drubbed the Hurricanes 41-3 in Chicago last Saturday. The last three match ups in this rivalry resulted in wins for Stanford, but Notre Dame is firing on all cylinders and ready to out muscle the Cardinal and keep their national championship hopes alive. This series has been dominated as of late with Stanford pushing around Notre Dame in the trenches. The Fighting Irish have put together a string of stingy defensive performances with only giving up six or less in the past three games. Here’s what to look for Saturday in South Bend: Read Full Story »
