USC-Notre Dame Game Hasn't Lived Up To Rivalry

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP/KTTV) - Southern California and Notre Dame have 22 national championships and 13 Heisman Trophy winners between them and their showdowns have included a lot of great games.

Just not lately.

Since Notre Dame won three straight over USC by four points from 1989-91, the game has been known more for lopsided victories than exhilarating finishes. Only seven of the past 21 games have been decided by a touchdown or less.

It's not just the competitiveness that has been lacking, though. While at least one team has been ranked in 64 of the 75 meetings since the AP poll started in 1936, this season marks the third time in the past four where neither is ranked.
