Kiffin and Kelly meet under the lights Saturday

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.
