The college football regular season concludes this weekend. It's rivalry week all across the nation as some of the most-heated rivalries will take place: from Michigan-Ohio State to Auburn-Alabama.

One of the biggest rivalry games this weekend features a team in the College Football Playoff conversation and another in a very down year. Notre Dame enters its contest against USC as the No. 3 team in the country and a near-lock to make the playoff.

The Trojans, however, need a win just to make a bowl game this season.

According to OddsShark's computer prediction, the Trojans will slide to 5-7 on the season with a blowout loss to Notre Dame on Saturday.

The Fighting Irish enter the game as a 10.5-point favorite over the Trojans. If OddsShark's score prediction is correct, that line isn't even close to the eventual outcome.

Notre Dame and USC kick off on Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
