College Football Late Saturday: It’s the Annual “Root for the Irish” Day for Bruin Fans

While UCLA fans may hate Notre Dame during basketball season, today is the day when Bruin fans cheer “Go Irish!”

NCAA Football: Notre Dame at Southern California Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

At this point in the season, there’s really only one game that Bruin fans care about and that’s our second favorite team. Tonight, it’s time for our second favorite team to be that team from South Bend, Indiana which we never like during basketball season.

I’m talking about the #13 Notre Dame Fighting Irish, of course, and, tonight, they host #11 Southern Cal, starting at 4:30 pm PT.

By then, today’s Bruin game should be officially over. So, Bruin fans looking for more college football should probably turn to NBC and root for the Irish.

If you can’t stand watching Southern Cal at all, there’s always the Penn State-Michigan game on ABC if you need an alternate college football game to watch.

Meanwhile, you Dodger fans may want to check out Game 7 of the ALCS to find out who your boys will face on Tuesday in the World Series. The Yankees are sending CC Sabathia to the hill and he hasn’t lost after a Yankee loss all season. Yeah, Dodger fans, the Yankees are coming!

If that doesn’t help, here’s the full slate of today’s late games.
