SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Tommy Rees threw two touchdowns before leaving the game with an injury and Notre Dame snapped a five-game home losing streak to USC with a 14-10 victory on Saturday night.

Rees was 14 of 21 passing for 166 yards with TD throws to Troy Niklas and TJ Jones in the first half. Rees left the game when he was sacked by USC linebacker Lamar Dawson in the third quarter and didn't return.

USC managed just 121 total yards of offense in the second half. After converting both third-down conversions on their opening scoring drive, the Trojans went 0-of-11 the rest of the game.

The Irish (5-2) beat the Trojans (4-3) for the third time in the past four games, after losing the previous eight straight, and won the rivalry game at home for the first time since 2001.
