When the Notre Dame Fighting Irish beat the USC Trojans last Saturday, it had a ripple effect all the way to Detroit, Michigan.
Considering how long USC and Notre Dame have been rivals, it’s not hard to imagine that there are quite a few players in the NFL that have carried that rivalry to the next level. And as is usually the case at that level, the rivalry played out with a bit of a friendly wager.
This time around it was former Notre Dame Fighting Irish player Julian Okwara making a wager with Detroit Lions and former USC Trojans star Amon-Ra St. Brown. Once the Irish ended up blowing the doors off USC, the receiver had to pay up.
You’ll just have to see what he had to do in order to settle his debt:
More Notre Dame Fighting Irish news
- Nobody really knows what to make of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish basketball team this season. After a disastrous final season under Mike Brey last year, there’s a new head coach in town and several new players. Among those new faces is Tae Davis who has played all over the court so far in his first few practices in South Bend. Eric Hansen of Rivals wrote recently, Davis has gone up against Big Men and he’s gone up against guards. The Seton Hall transfer is getting a lot of looks to see where he fits in the 2023-2024 season.
- The Notre Dame Fighting Irish win over USC was certainly impressive but some might not be clear on just how impressive. It turns out that Caleb Williams and company only managed 4.1 yards per play. That’s a new low for Trojans coach Lincoln Riley. Anywhere he’s coached. He’s never had an offense be that inefficient. One has to wonder if the Notre Dame Fighting Irish didn’t just lay out a blueprint to stop him moving forward.
