We shift gears, now, to the biggest college football game of the year. Top-ranked notre dame, facing its archrival, usc, tomorrow. Its showdown saturday for those two. And for notre dame, one of the country's most storied teams, it is a chance to furnish their glory anew. If they win, they will play for their first national championship in decades. They're the team you either love. Or love to hate. The golden domes of the notre dame fighting irish. While they've won an impressive 13 national titles, it's been decades since their last in 1988. But this weekend, another step toward redemption toward the archrival usc trojans. A team they've lost to nine of their last ten games. But a win will mean a shot at title number 14. All eyes on this man, whose south bend legend is already written. A team captain and heisman trophy favorite. Faith is believing in something that you most likely can't see. But you believe to be true. You still take that leap. Reporter: That faith, put to the test this fall, when in a span of six hours, his grandmother died and he lost his girlfriend to leukemia. Just my grandma passed away. And you take, you know, the love of my life. Last thing she said to me was, i love you. Reporter: The very next saturday, he was back on the field, intercepting two passes on the day they were buried. I love each and every one of you. We had our highs and we had our lows. But at the end of the day, we stuck together. Reporter: It was a snapshot of all that has the irish back on top. And this year, it's why their fans and possibly their biggest fan, are such believers. This is s.C.'S one chance to redeem itself from having a terrible season to beat notre dame. But coach kelly won't let them beat notre dame. We've come so far. So great this season. Notre dame wins. You watch it. A little excited. Yes. Just a bit. I can tell you, there is no better story in the sport than teyo. I have to say the sport is better when notre dame is this good. Go, irish. Or not. Don't miss it, though.
