Notre Dame fans are cheering for USC against UCLA

Fighting Irish Wire is preparing for USC week. You can’t blame the folks at Irish Wire.

 Their game against Boston College this weekend doesn’t figure to be particularly dramatic or worthy of national buzz.

Obviously, it is in Notre Dame’s best interest to have the USC game become as big as it realistically can,

under the circumstances. No, it won’t have national championship implications for the Irish,

Irish Wire explained why it is rooting for USC this weekend against UCLA:

“No. 25 Oregon State at Arizona State No. 7 USC at No. 16 UCLA

No. 17 Washington vs. Colorado No. 10 Utah at No. 12 Oregon

“It’s easy to see why we’ll pull against both Oregon State and Washington seeing as the proximity in rankings to Notre Dame.  

As for USC, a win by them would theoretically mean the Irish move past UCLA in next week’s

The joy of being the ones who ruin Southern Cal’s College Football Playoff hopes.  

“As for Utah and Oregon, we’ll back the Utes as a win by them accomplishes two things:

strengthens USC’s resume for next week, and knocks Oregon even closer to Notre Dame in the polls.”
