Irish will play for BCS Title

Posted: Updated:

In a microcosm of its season, Notre Dame stuffed USC near the goal line in the fourth quarter to finish the regular season and clinch a spot in the BCS title game.

The top-ranked Irish beat Notre Dame 22-13 Saturday night and now wait to see who they will play in January for the national title.

It's Notre Dame's first trip to the title game since the formation of the BCS and do so under third year head coach Brian Kelly, who left UC for South Bend after the 2009 season.

Notre Dame last finished a season undefeated in 1988, the same season as the program's last national championship.
