The USC Trojans and Notre Dame Fighting Irish are both consistently among the most competitive college football programs in the nation. The series between these two has been relatively one-sided in recent years, with the Trojans winning five of the last six, but it looks like oddsmakers expect this year's edition of the matchup to be a close one.

Even with the 2020 college football offseason experiencing some unprecedented spring delays and cancellations, the odds and spreads around more than 100 of this fall's biggest matchups are now available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

USC vs Notre Dame Odds & Spread 2020

This matchup of two historic programs is shaping up to be one of the best games of the season. The two are viewed as nearly evenly matched, with the Trojans favored by just 1 point.

Led by Heisman-hopeful quarterback Kedon Slovis, the Trojans passing attack will come out firing, and the narrative heading into the game will likely be all about the quarterback matchup. Notre Dame has a quarterback in the Heisman conversation as well, with Ian Book returning for his fourth season with the Irish.

With the spread being so close this game very well could come down to which of these talented quarterbacks has the ball last. This one of the games to mark on your calendar now.
