Notre Dame's rivalry with the USC Trojans took center stage with the Fighting Irish going in ranked No. 1 for the first time since 1993 and USC without its starting quarterback, Matt Barkley. That didn't stop his replacement, Max Wittek, from guaranteeing a win for the Trojans. He wasn't able to follow through with it of course and the Fighting Irish locked down a berth in the BCS title game.
One of the most historic rivalries in college football is still to come. The 113th Army/Navy game is scheduled for December 8 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia where the Black Knights of Army will try to keep the Midshipmen from making it 10 in a row.
