Trojans look ahead to Irish

LOS ANGELES — Like two proud but beat up former heavyweight champions, the USC Trojans(7-4, 6-3 Pac-12) and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (7-4) stagger into Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday in what turns out to be their final round of the 2014 regular season.

Both unranked programs are hurting from difficult Saturday losses, as the Trojans were completely humbled by rival UCLA, 38-20, in the Rose Bowl while the Irish helped beat themselves by missing a field goal at the end of a 31-28 loss against Louisville at home.

The Trojans are now 2-2 in their last four games while the Irish have lost three in the same span. The two teams have two common Pac-12 opponents — Stanford and Arizona State. Both the Trojans and Irish beat the Cardinal but lost to the Sun Devils.
