SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) – Notre Dame is a loss to rival Southern California away from one of the worst collapses in the program's history.
Coach Brian Kelly said Sunday the biggest concern for Notre Dame (7-4) this week won't be the rivalry with Trojans (7-4), who are coming off a disappointing 38-20 loss to UCLA, but on finding a way to win.
"Finishing the season with a victory is all we're focused on," he said. "It's a great rivalry, great tradition, great history. But I think in a sense this week is about just finding a way to get a win for these guys."
