Notre Dame vs. USC
Saturday, Nov. 22, 8 p.m.
ESPN Deportes TV
Two of the biggest college football programs in the country face off in what is one of the deciding games for the BCS Championship. No.1 Notre Dame and Heisman hopeful Manti Te’o only need a victory in Los Angeles on Saturday to make it to the school’s first BCS national title game. USC – a two-time BCS Championship game participant — had high hopes for this season, but have posted a 7-4 record and lost against UCLA last weekend. The Trojans will still look to play the role of spoiler, and will have to do so without starting quarterback Matt Barkley. It marks the 84th meeting between the squads with USC winning nine of the last 10 games against Notre Dame.

Monday Night Football:
Carolina Panthers vs. Philadelphia Eagles
