No. 21 Notre Dame hopes to rebound from 2nd loss while renewing rivalry with No. 10 Trojans
No. 21 Notre Dame might be out of the college football playoff chase
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — History suggests No. 21 Notre Dame may already be out of the college football playoff picture.
Still, coach Marcus Freeman insists there is plenty for the Fighting Irish to achieve this season.
Notre Dame's new quest will take place Saturday with an opportunity to face longtime rival No. 10 Southern Cal and reclaim the Jeweled Shillelagh the team lost last season after holding it for four straight years.
“The best thing about this week is we have to get back to work and get prepared for a great opponent in USC coming in here Saturday night,” Freeman said. “We expect it to be an electric atmosphere, a great environment and a great opportunity for this program to use the adversity we faced this past week and to use it as energy and motivation.”
