the sticks. third and five. >> doug: usc taking their last time-out. a lot of people say they are out of time-outs with 1:00 to go, you are saving the same amount of time whether it is now or if you get it back later. the short gain and the clock running and receivers down the field, take the time-outs while you can save it. save time. but there is going to be a point somewhere in this drive where kessler is going to have to force one up the field. try to look somebody off, move and launch and hope one of your big play guys comes up with the ball. because there is not enough time to three to five yards at a clip go down the field.
plays, gadget plays. what does he have here on third down and five? he is out of time-outs. trailing by ten. usc needing a couple of quick scores. kessler waiting for somebody to get open and throws it out of bounds. clock stops at 1:06. fourth and five. >> doug: tighter coverage that time. locked on man-to-man underneath. better coverage. as i said, kessler with a three-man rush, you can hang on to the football, move around and hope something breaks open down the field. i think that is his thinking there, maybe get a big play. >> dan: notre dame, just a stop away from putting this one away. kessler. completes near side. first down to madden.
he gets out of bounds. they stop it with 1:01 left. >> doug: as long as you get out of bounds, five-yard gains are fine. as long as you can lineup quickly. >> dan: here come the trojans on the line again. waiting for a big play attempt here by kessler. underneath. that ball gets loose. >> doug: they are not a lot of big windows. the three-man rush allows notre dame to drop eight men in coverage. the windows are tight. your receivers will take a big hit.
couple of blue jerseys. >> doug: with all of the zone coverage you are getting, it is a risky call. but a screen pass to one of your backs, jones, they have an opportunity. >> dan: sheldon day on the sidelines. he was very active in the second half. second down and 10. usc out of time-outs, trailing by ten. waiting for one of these big shots from kessler to one of these speedy wideouts. pressure. steps up. throws near side. leads to smith-schuster. another first down for usc. they keep the chains moving. 49 seconds left. >> doug: the other approach is to get it in field goal range
for your onside kick leaving yourself time. >> dan: just seems like sooner or later you go with one, try to get adoree' jackson down there. >> doug: he is hanging on to the ball but it isn't happening for him down the field. >> dan: now he is going to run this. trying to get out of bounds and stop it and he will. second down. he gets to the irish 41. >> doug: part of the mind set might be i start to throw a couple down there and it ended up with interceptions. i don't want a third interception. but it is getting to the point where you need points on the board in a hurry with the possibility of a onside kick. get in field goal range and kick the field goal. >> dan: kessler in trouble and down he goes.
running. >> doug: eventually you are going to get there. but the defensive line, you get tired of pass rushing every play and eventually notre dame finally got there. >> dan: now we will be down to 20 seconds on this snap on third shovel. up to davis. >> doug: that will do it. >> dan: that is go to probably jaylon smith with the final tackle of the game and time has finally run out on the trojans. notre dame wins it 41-31. irish improve to 6-1. trojans fall to 3-3. usc gave them a big fight. but in the end notre dame pulling away. a very entertaining game in the rivalry. that was a lot of fun. >> doug: big plays all over the place.
it came down to if all of those big plays, came down to offensive line play and running the football. >> dan: down to kathryn. >> kathryn: coach, this game was full of big plays, trick plays and a lot of momentum swings. what ultimately determined the win for the irish? >> two 90-yard drives offensively. big plays. and then we just found a way to make a couple of plays. i think the interception by russell was huge. got us that turnover. really, you know, i think that was a big play in this game where we could slow down usc. hats off to them. but our kids made plays in the fourth quarter when they needed to. >> kathryn: coach, thanks for your time. dan. >> dan: thanks, kathryn. notre dame outscores usc 17-0 in the fourth quarter to win it as the irish hold the trojans scoreless in the last 20 minutes. you can watch brian kelly's

northwest of that, fitchburg, leominster, the freeze warning is not posted there. that doesn't mean the temperatures won't drop to freezing tonight. it is just that the growing season has already ended there. it is not a warning really. it has already happened. flakes drop in after midnight. freeze warning in effect. if the growing season doesn't end for you tonight, metro-boston, cape cod, and also for the islands, tomorrow night is your night. as temperatures get even colder. as we get into tomorrow, the temperatures really just don't warm up a whole lot. we are stuck in the 40's. very cold air mass that has moved in upstairs. and it will be chilly. with the breeze pumping out of the northwest. about 10-20 miles per hour. i mentioned that breeze. temperatures, cold. gets even colder as we get into tomorrow night. a freeze watch which means the potential is there for the temperatures to drop below freezing tomorrow night. even for metro-boston, cape cod, and martha's vineyard. we will keep an eye out for night. breezy conditions for the head
of the charles tomorrow. hopefully, that sunshine makes it feel a little nicer. if you are not a fan of the cold blast, don't worry. it is out of here by the time we make it into the middle part of next week. we make quite the rebound. we are stuck in the 40's for sunday and monday. then look what happens on tuesday. much more seasonable temperatures. back near 60 degrees. here is a look at that 7 on 7 forecast. more seasonable through the week. even a boost in temperatures for thursday with a chance of showers. 67 is the high that day. have a great night. >> looks good. thank you, bri. a boston marathon bombing survivor tying the knot. he married his longtime girlfriend in foxboro. he lost a leg in the marathon bombing two years ago. several other survivors were there, including his brother paul who also lost a leg in the bombing. >> the patriots and colts now under 24 hours to go. until kickoff.
