Photo gallery: Notre Dame-USC

It's Notre Dame. It's USC. It's as big of a rivalry as there is nationally involving nonconference opponents, with memorable moments both recent and not-so-recent.

ESPN has a photo gallery chronicling many of the schools' big matchups that you can view here.

Saturday will mark just the third Notre Dame-USC game that I have covered. The first one featured shiny new helmets, a big upset and, of course, the birth of "Crazy Train" inside Notre Dame Stadium. All the second one had was one team clinching a BCS title game berth.

Suffice it to say, I'm looking forward to Saturday night's showdown in South Bend.
