Cloudy weather, possible showers tonight.

Zachariah Branch does appear to be available tonight for USC.

Big one tonight for all involved. What version of the Irish offense shows up against this SC D? What can ND do to slow down Caleb Williams?

See you back at kickoff in less than 10

Go Irish

JJB pressure, forces Williams to scramble, nothing open down field. Gets maybe 1 out of bounds

3 and long

Comeback route vs C Lew converts

1 and 10

Williams pressured, tried the RPO throw to the TE, overthrew it and Watts picked it!

Returns it inside the red zone

Estime works inside for 6

Estime with run of 10+ yards to start the drive. Didn't have one of hotse all of last week.

Check down to Estime runs over the DE who dropped to the flat

2 and 6

Starting safety down for SC after that 1st play. They aren't deep so that is something to monitor

Alexander again beats Correll at the POA. Gain of 1

1 and 10

Gave Williams too much time. Nothing open, but he scrambles for a 1st. Holding on Hart tacked on at the end. additional 10 added to it

1 and 10 at the ND 46

Mills nice job getting penetration and Rubio finished it

2 and 9

Good protection and had time to hit the square in for another 1st

Quick on the ball, IZ for 4

2 and 6

Tried to get Branch in the open field and ND did a decent job defending, but still got the first, Barely

OPI called on Singer vs BMo. Obvious push off

1 and 25 at the ND 39

Quick screen gets about 9 back, but then illegal hands to the face by BMo gives them a 1st in the red zone

3 and 6

ND brought the house, threw the quick screen and Hart with the TFL. Great job and big stop for the ND defense

Chip shot FG is good, but when you hold SC to three in that situation, it's a win

7-3 ND

A lot of stuff going on there with the fake reverse, it goes for 10

Inside for 5

2 and 5

Lots of rotation early on the DL for ND

Cross blows up the run there, ND gets a stuff

Williams on the money, right at the sticks to convert

Pressure from Cross and good cover on the deep ball by BMo. Incomplete

2 and 10

Watts with a monster shot on the sideline on the back, 3 and 3 TFL by DJ Brown who came up and after Mills plugged up the inside

SC forced to punt, Sneed almost blocked it but ran into the punter. That's 5 against ND and it makes it 4 and 1

Big mistake there. SC will go for it

Quick toss gets about 4 to Estime

2 and 6

Tried the slot fade vs the wrong safety. Faison vs Bullock isn't the match up they want

3 and 6

Hartman hit Evans on the in and great ply by 17 to break it up.

Long punt to Branch and good enough coverage by ND to not let Branch get loose

Holding takes away the return

USC football wth under 6 minutes to go in the half. They'll start out at their own 6

1 and 10

Mesh for SC, get called on a pick play.

BMo gets called for PI to give them those 15 back. Tried a deep shot to Rice and he had a step and BMo didn't want to take the chance

Cross batted down the pass at the line on 1st down

2 and 10

Nice job by Kiser and Onye playing their gaps, and getting a stop

Slant broken up by BMo. Terrific finish on the slant

Just too long to cover the ND defense
