USC has dominated headlines for all the wrong reasons recently thanks to its embattled former head coach, Steve Sarkisan. Sarkisan, who was initially given a leave of absence after last weekend due to issues with alcohol, has since been relieved of his duties. The Trojans will turn to Clay Helton as the team's interim coach. Who's the betting favorite to replace Sarkisan? Click here to find out.
Notre Dame has averaged 239 rushing yards per game this year, good enough for the 13th-best mark in the nation. USC is lagging behind at 178 yards on the ground per contest this year.
