SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) No. 13 Notre Dame will be without senior inside linebacker Greer Martini on Saturday night when it faces No. 11 Southern California.
Martini has a torn meniscus, and had arthroscopic surgery last week. He has started five games for the Irish (5-1) and has 39 tackles, an interception and two forced fumbles.
Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly, who had listed Martini day-to-day at his Tuesday press conference, said Thursday that Martini would definitely be held out against the Trojans (6-1).
