LOS ANGELES, Calif. (WNDU) - Notre Dame’s five-game winning streak was finally brought to an end in Saturday’s season finale versus rival USC, as the Trojans beat the Irish 38-27.

USC quarterback Caleb Williams totaled 4 touchdowns (3 rushing, 1 passing) against an injury-depleted Irish secondary.

Irish quarterback Drew Pyne had an efficient day, throwing for three touchdowns and completing 23 of his 26 passes. He also threw a late interception as the Irish were pursuing a comeback.
