The Notre Dame Fighting Irish can singlehandedly stamp their ticket to the BCS National Championship Game this weekend. All they have to do is get past the Pac-12 program that countless experts had deemed the preseason No. 1. Weigh in on college football futures as the NCAA season hits its final stretch.

According to Bovada’s NCAA oddsmakers, the Irish sit second in the nation with 2/1 odds of winning the 2012-13 BCS title – conveniently they sit first in the national standings. As such, a win in Week 13 would guarantee them a chance against either Alabama or Georgia in the National Championship. The USC Trojans, in contrast, have experienced a distinctly opposite trend, and the college football betting community has taken notice.
After starting at the top of their conference, and even the country, the Trojans came up short four times against Pac-12 opponents. Needless to say, their title hopes have been dashed, their chances of even contending in their conference obliterated and their NCAA odds at a frightening low.
An underwhelming campaign, however, might not keep them from playing spoilers under the spotlight of an elite matchup in their season finale. Should the Trojans beat the Irish, an unlikely but not impossible task without starting quarterback Matt Barkley, the hordes in South Bend would go without an appearance in the big game altogether. (In which case, either Florida or Oregon will take ND’s place against either of the two aforementioned SEC juggernauts).
