Jemele Hill Says She Deserved Suspension From ESPN

Adams (19 carries, 191 yards) and Wimbush (14 carries, 106 yards) combined for five touchdowns. The Fighting Irish are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games, 3-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. Football is about opportunities, and few teams are making more of theirs than Notre Dame.
Kelly was asked about Adams possibly not getting the attention he deserves nationally. "I know that I keep saying that, but his level of play will get better and better as the weeks go on". "Maybe everyone should just wait until the end of the year and vote for the Heisman". The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have lost five of their last eight home games.

Thorson's score was set up by a 23-yard reception by Justin Jackson, who broke three tackles on the play to give the Wildcats (4-3, 2-2 in the Big Ten) a first down at the 1. With quarterback Sam Darnold completing 62.7 percent of his passes for 2,063 yards and running back Ronald Jones II having rushed for 640 yards while averaging 6.3 yards per carry, USC should have no trouble moving the ball the way it has all season. So the first hint Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly felt unusually confident about beating USC was his relaxed presence and expansive comments.
Kelly said that Thursday's practice was Wimbush's "best day since he's been here", mostly because he "is starting to see things quicker". A win over Notre Dame would have boosted USC's strength of schedule and an undefeated run through the conference and a win in the conference title game would have undoubtedly put USC in the playoff.
"Got a sad football team in there right now".
Said Helton: "We're a little light". USC's hopes for a Pac-12 South title and a New Year's Six bowl game are alive and well.
USC: A second straight loss will drop the Trojans, the question is whether the blowout loss will drop them all the way out. Defensively, Notre Dame is allowing 16.8 points and 365.7 yards per contest.
