COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: USC is 3-8 ATS L11 overall. Last year: Usc (-9) over NOTRE DAME, 31-17. The Irish are number one now in the nation and just need to win here to have a chance to play for the BCS Championship. USC will be trying to end Notre Dame’s hopes, but they’ll have to do it without QB Matt Barkley, who was injured in their 38-28 loss to UCLA last Saturday. Freshman Max Wittek takes over in his first career start. In a recent radio interview, he already said USC will win the game. Nothing wrong with having confidence but he now has to back it up. He has to face one of the best defenses in the nation, who shut Wake Forest down, 38-0 last week. QB Everett Golson threw for 346 yards and 3 TDs last week.
