Irish to don sparkly new helmets for USC night game

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – For the first night game at Notre Dame Stadium in 21 years, the Fighting Irish will wear sparkly new helmets and perhaps green jerseys, all to spice up a rivalry that has seldom needed it.

It’s Southern Cal coming to town to continue a remarkable series that began in 1926 when Knute Rockne took the Irish to the West Coast and came away with a 13-12 win.

Notre Dame (4-2) ended an eight-game losing streak to the Trojans (5-1) last season. Saturday’s 83rd meeting between the one-time college powers will mark only the 10th time – and second straight season –that both schools enter the game unranked.
