ing forward to those days where it’s a great matchup year in and year out,” he said.

The Irish have not beaten USC at Notre Dame Stadium since 2001. When that fact was pointed out to Kelly earlier this week, he said he was not aware of it.

And USC interim coach Ed Orgeron said he doesn’t want his team focusing on that fact, either.

“There’s been a lot put on this team,” Orgeron said.

The Trojans, Orgeron added, are focusing on the game being Game 2 of a new season after the firing of Lane Kiffin.

If Orgeron’s Trojans can beat the Irish tonight, he would join John Robinson and Paul Hackett as the only USC coaches to beat Notre Dame in their first season.

The USC defense has struggled in recent weeks, especially in a 62-41 loss to Arizona State that led to Kiffin’s ouster.

In the past two games, opponents have scored 93 points, rushed for 406 yards, passed for 714 yards and have scored on nine of 10 trips inside the end zone, including six touchdowns.

Orgeron said the problems are fixable.

“We have not been playing the quarterback very well,” Orgeron said. “Spread teams are giving us problems.”

Orgeron has been pleased with the progress of redshirt sophomore quarterback Cody Kessler.

“Cody’s growing into his position and becoming a leader,” Orgeron said.

Kessler has completed 81-of-134 passes for 1,129 yards and eight TDs with four interceptions so far in 2013.

Game-time temperatures are expected to be in the mid-40s, and USC is 9-7 in cold-weather games over its history.

The field at Notre Dame Stadium has been resodded again — the latest turf replacement coming after the Oklahoma game.

Kelly said he hasn’t seen the field, but has heard good reports. “We’re hopeful. We expect good results,” he said. “There is a bit of uncertainty when you don’t, obviously, know what to expect.”

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
