Win one for the fat man? Win one for the Holtzer? Could anyone have dreamed, even a month ago, that the 1996 college football season would come down to this? To a USC team turned upside-down by three consecutive defeats and speculation that its coach is about to be turned loose? To a Notre Dame team whose coach is walking away, virtually without explanation, from the sport's best job? Yet that's exactly how the script reads when Notre Dame (8-2) plays USC (5-6) tonight at a sold-out Coliseum.

Notre Dame has become the latest university to install FieldTurf in its football stadium. The artificial grass is expected to be installed in time for the Aug. 31 season opener against Rice. It closes an era where landscaping was part of the Notre Dame game plan. In 1976, legend has it, Notre Dame let the grass grow for its season-opener against Pittsburgh, then led by Tony Dorsett. Dorsett had gained 303 yards against the Fighting Irish the previous season. Former Notre Dame Coach Ara Parseghian, who did television commentary for that game, even called it the “Dorsett cut.” Dorsett, in a 2008 interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, said , “You could drop a golf ball in the grass and couldn't see it. It was that high.

No. 4 Sherman Oaks Notre Dame (7-1, 0-0) vs. No. 15 Encino Crespi (7-2, 2-0) at Birmingham High. Tonight at 7. Why it matters: These two San Fernando Valley rivals are among the top baseball programs in Southern Section Division II. To win this Mission League game, Crespi will need a strong pitching performance from junior Ryon Healy (3-0). The Celts' top hitter has been third baseman Zack Wiley, who's 11 for 21. Notre Dame's top hitter has been infielder Casey Ryan, who is 16 for 33.

NASHVILLE  - If there ever were a sports matchup with organic hype, this is it: the first meeting of two undefeated teams in the final of an NCAA women's basketball tournament. Add to that the sass, snark and sniping the coaches of those teams indulged in Monday, and Tuesday's game between Connecticut and Notre Dame has taken on an atmosphere that is multiplying the hype exponentially. Notre Dame's Muffet McGraw said "hate" and "lack of civility" would be fair ways to describe her team's rivalry with Connecticut.

 Something is going on with the Sherman Oaks Notre Dame track and field program. Of the 180 boys on the track team, 32 are shot putters. "We try to make it fun," Coach Joe McNab said. On Thursday, in a dual meet against Alemany, five of the shot putters surpassed 50 feet, led by Kyle Swanson, who was at 53-9. Apparently they like throwing around a 12-pound lead ball at Notre Dame. It's fun. Eric.sondheimer@latimes.com

Redshirt freshman quarterback Gunner Kiel has decided to transfer, Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly said Tuesday. Kelly said he was a surprised about the move because the coaching staff had told Kiel he'd have an ample opportunity to compete for the starting role this spring.
