When the Irish made their way into Los Angeles for their matchup with the Trojans on Saturday, you knew the Irish faithful would travel well to see their team have a shot at making it to Miami to play in the title game. What you maybe didn’t know, is they also stayed home in amazing fashion in front of their TV’s. The game which showed off the lack of coaching skills by Lane Kiffin, and sent the Irish to Miami pulled in easily the highest ratings for a college football game this season.
According to Sports Media Watch::
The latest edition of “Saturday Night Football,” pitting #1 Notre Dame against unranked Southern Cal, earned a 10.3 overnight rating on ABC — up 151% from Notre Dame/Stanford last year (4.1), and up 98% from regional action featuring Oklahoma/Oklahoma State in 2010 (5.2).
The 10.3 overnight is easily the highest of the season for college football on any network, sailing past the previous high of 7.0 for Alabama/Louisiana State on CBS two weeks earlier.

Notre Dame is back on top of the football world, and they can thanks some friendly calls from the officials in the Pitt and Stanford games for helping them get there. They can also thank USC boy wonder Lane Kiffin for his awful playcalling and clock management at the end of Saturday’s game for a major assist.

So, let me get this straight…
USC — specifically AD Pat Haden — is bringing back next season a football coach who, despite the wealth of talent the storied SC football program attracts, has accumulated a decidedly mediocre 7-5 record this season; who, even with the enviable offensive weapons he has at his disposal, couldn’t figure out how to get in the end zone in four chances...
If the late Al Davis was alive today, he’d feel vindicated and like he’s the world’s smartest person. The more it’s brought to our attention, the more fans learn the truth about Lane Kiffin, the second-year coach at USC, whose bizarre play calling and methods have smudged the Trojans’ national title aspirations.
