Notre Dame hosts USC tomorrow in what should be a low scoring yet easy Trojan win. The only hope the Irish have is if the Trojans don't show up.
They almost didn't.
Southern Cal's chartered flight had some very tense moments last night. A severe thunderstorm caused the plane to plummet at one point during the flight.
Quarterback John David Booty said, "It wasn't the worst flight I've ever been on, but it was definitely the biggest drop."
If they lose to Notre Dame, their drop in the polls will be just as big.
