LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Jeweled Shillelagh has been spending an awful lot of time in Hollywood over the past decade.
Southern California has won nine of its last 10 meetings with Notre Dame in one of college football's best intersectional rivalries. The Trojans won a record eight straight over the Irish before a narrow loss in 2009, falling one dropped touchdown pass short of a perfect 10-year stretch with the bejeweled trophy.
USC's dominance will be tested Saturday at the Coliseum, however. Top-ranked Notre Dame (11-0) needs a win to advance to the BCS title game, while the Trojans (7-4) have been reduced to spoilers after starting the year at No. 1.
The series still resonates with players from both schools, although USC has dominated it for most of their youths.
