SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) It isn't often that Brian Kelly has to get his team's attention.
Late in Saturday's 30-27 victory over Southern California that moved the Irish to 5-1, Kelly tried. He raced out onto the field to get a timeout from officials as the Trojans lined up to attempt an onside kick late in the game.
Kelly wasn't successful but neither were the Trojans as tight end Brock Wright fielded the kick cleanly to seal the win and keep his eighth-ranked team's hopes alive for a College Football Playoff appearance for the second straight season.
