USC vs. Notre Dame Halftime Score: 14-10 Irish

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

A TJ Jones touchdown grab pushed the Fighting Irish ahead after 30 minutes.

It's a close one halfway through the game, with the Trojans and Fighting Irish going at it in South Bend.

Silas Redd is (literally) carrying USC's offense, gaining 91 yards on 14 carries. Buck Allen has added 21 yards on 4 touches, too.

Cody Kessler hasn't picked it up yet, passing within 15 yards of the line of scrimmage, resulting in a 9-for-16, 94-yard stat line.

Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees has been the better of the two quarterbacks, completing 12 passes on 18 attempts for 148 yards. Tailback Cam McDaniel's ran for 83 yards on 11 carries.

For the most part, both offenses are having their way with opposing defenses; the Irish have 248 yards while USC's gained 209.

USC will have the option to receive in the second half, so the offense will likely take the field first barring an incredibly puzzling decision by Ed Orgeron. Given the team's poor third quarter performances all year, this will be a possession.
