Notre Dame vs. USC odds: Trojans now just under a touchdown underdog to Irish

Jonathan Daniel

The USC Trojans are still decent underdogs to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish with Max Wittek starting at quarterback.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are one win away from going back to the national championship game, but one test remains: Their archrivals in Los Angeles, the USC Trojans.

USC is currently decent underdogs to Notre Dame. The Trojans opened as four-point underdogs, but with the announcement that Matt Barkley is out for the season finale, the line has dropped a bit. The Irish are currently favored by 5.5 to six points, which means that on a neutral field they would probably be favored by 8.5 to nine points.

Notre Dame has rolled through their schedule as the lone BCS eligible undefeated team.

Notre Dame has had squeakers with BYU, Stanford, Michigan, Purdue and Pittsburgh, but has also blown past Michigan State, Miami (FL), Boston College, Oklahoma and Wake Forest. USC meanwhile is stumbling to the finish, losing three of their past four games to Arizona, Oregon and UCLA. They will have to rely on Wittek to try and score one of the biggest upsets of the season.
