NOW: ND vs. USC weather history and gameday forecast

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame and the University of Southern California boast two of most historic college football franchises in history with a rivalry considered even more legendary.

Heading into Saturday, the Irish have the all-time series advantage at 48-37-5.

Since 1977, the Irish are 9-0 at home against USC when measurable precipitation has fallen (whether rain or snow).

With rain in the forecast this Saturday, the Irish are looking to make it 10-0.

The past two times when the Irish have beaten USC in South Bend (2019 and 2021), the recorded highs for both gamedays were 55 degrees.

This Saturday is also forecasted to have a high of 55F alongside steady rain showers, almost an identical profile to 2021's Irish victory.

All weather is football weather and tomorrow will be no different.

The trojans will be walking into a cool, windy south bend with plenty of rain to go alongside the falling temperatures.

Kickoff is at 7:30 EST with temperatures expected to fall into the low 50s at that time and wind gusts approaching around 30 mph.

A triple point of low pressure will be moving in from the west on Saturday, which is the primary motivator for damp, cloudy weather.

Make sure when tailgating or attending the game tomorrow you have a rain jacket and/or umbrella, as well as plenty of layers around your hands and feet to stay dry.
