USC and Notre Dame squared off in a primetime Saturday night matchup in what was expected to be one of the weekend’s best games between two ranked teams.

That didn’t quite happen.

The Irish totaled 377 rushing yards and five touchdowns on the ground as Notre Dame (6-1) jumped out to a 28-0 first half lead and never looked back. The Trojans (6-3, 4-1 Pac-12) offense finally came alive in the second half, but USC had no answer for Notre Dame quarterback Brandon Wimbush (two passing and two rushing touchdowns) and running back Josh Adams (three rushing touchdowns) as the duo combined for seven total scores in the Irish’s 49-14 victory at Notre Dame Stadium.

The home team has now won each of the last five matchups in this historical rivalry. Notre Dame holds the all-time series lead 45-36-5 after Saturday night’s win.
