Notre Dame and USC will not play each other in 2020 for the first time since 1945. It will come more later on Monday as the shock still feels fresh, but is currently a former Notre Dame commitment and now USC running back does not like that It will not be a struggle for some jeweled shillelaghs in 2020.
Markese Stepp, a former Notre Dame commitment in the 2018 recruiting class, committed from the Irish in favor of USC. The Indianapolis native was not exactly happy to hear the news of the rivalry that was on watch over the weekend.
The 6-0, 235-pound running back has lost both games he played against Notre Dame so far but was a bit of a toss in the side of the Irish last year as he ran for a career-high 82 yards and a touchdown during Notre Dame’s in the middle of October victory over the Trojans.
Although he dropped his Notre Dame commitment to USC’s colored ketchup and mustard appearance, I believe all Irish and Trojan fans can find a common ground to feel exactly the same about the fact that this rivalry will not be played in 2020.
Here’s to hoping we get college football at all this fall.
