Notre Dame and USC are set to meet in a rivalry game next weekend. The Fighting Irish and the Trojans couldn't be more different as they head into this game.

Brian Kelly's team is undefeated and seeking a College Football Playoff berth, which should be locked up with a win against USC.

Clay Helton's team, meanwhile, needs to beat the Fighting Irish in order to make a bowl game. There are many who believe USC will be making a head coaching change after the season.

An initial betting line has been released for the contest. It's a little surprising.

Notre Dame will head into this weekend's game against USC as an 8-point favorite.

That seems a little low, considering where the two teams are.

Notre Dame and USC are set to kick off at 8 p.m. E.T. on Saturday.

The game will be on ABC.
