Lane Kiffin and Brian Kelly are scheduled to meet Saturday for the second time since each of them took their respective jobs. Kelly currently has the 1-0 edge after winning last seasons matchup 20-16.
Kelly has got the Irish back on track, winning 8 of their last 10 games stretching back to last season. Their only two losses during that stretch were to USF and Michigan to open this season, by a total of 7 points.
Prior to last seasons loss, the Trojans were riding an 8 game winning streak against the Irish. The Trojans are 13-6 under Kiffin (5-1 currently) and hope to get the rivalry back in their favor as they take on the Irish under the lights for the first time ever in South Bend.
Each coach has a top 30 pass offense, and if last seasons match up was any indication of what to expect when these two coaches meet, expect a great one.
