    No. 15 Notre Dame vs. No. 6 USC, 7:30 p.m. on ABC
    South Carolina won't be the only school looking to play spoiler to CFP hopes today. Marcus Freeman already dashed Dabo Swinney's postseason aspirations significantly at the start of this month, and now Notre Dame's first-year head coach will seek to do the same against Lincoln Riley and USC to close out what has been a tumultuous season for the Fighting Irish. Freeman may have had some early-season hiccups even excluding the opener against his alma mater, but Notre Dame now carries a wealth of momentum into Los Angeles after most recently shutting out Boston College 44-0 at home.

    The Fighting Irish's 281 rushing yards as a team last week could foreshadow major problems for a USC defense that has gotten gashed on the ground all season. The Trojans allow the fourth-highest success rate to opponents' running plays at a 48% clip, so Alex Grinch will need to have his front seven prepared to control the line of scrimmage and consistently fill gap responsibilities if USC wants to avoid losing their case for a playoff spot.
