Notre Dame Fighting Irish Game Notes
Drew Pyne completed 13-of-25 pass attempts for 156 yards and one touchdown as a snowstorm and the score curtailed the passing game in the Irish 44-0 win over Boston College on Nov. 19. Notre Dame was already ahead 23-0 with nine minutes remaining in the first half. Pyne's lone touchdown came in the first quarter. The junior could be in for a much bigger passing day on Saturday, Nov. 26 when the Irish travel to Southern California, who is near the bottom in the FBS against the passing, allowing 258 yards per game.
USC Trojans Game Notes
Caleb Williams completed 32 of 43 passes for 470 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Saturday's 48-45 victory versus UCLA. He also had eight rushes for 33 yards with one touchdown. Saturday's game was a high-flying back-and-forth battle, and every time the Bruins scored, the Trojans were able to answer. Although USC's defense can be credited for saving the day with a slew of turnovers, Williams delivered in racking up the score when necessary, With two ranked opponents on the horizon, the Trojans have a legit shot at making the playoff, and if Williams can post similar numbers over the next two weeks, the Heisman trophy could be his.
