The college football season heads into is final weekend of the regular season. Week 13 offers the biggest rivalry games of the year, from a match-up between Ohio State vs. Michigan and Alabama vs. Auburn, among others.

Ahead of one major rivalry game, a fan-base started a GoFundMe page with the hopes of firing its head coach. USC fans created a page asking for donations so that a group can fly a banner calling for Clay Helton's firing.

But that's not all. The first goal is to fly the banner, but the second goal is to raise $20,000 to run a full page ad in the L.A. Times requesting the university move on from Helton as the team's head coach.

Within the first four hours of the page's existence, it's already raised over $4,500.

You can see the page here.

Notre Dame and USC kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET on Saturday night. The game will be broadcast on ABC.

Stay tuned for flying banners.
