This game marked the inauguration of Notre Dame's greatest rivalry, and the 13-12 win was perhaps fitting, given the long-standing Notre Dame edge in the overall tally and the nail-biting closeness of many of the games---the Ramblers won three of the first four games in the series by a combined margin of three points! One other bit of trivia that should be noted about this game was the appearance of a backup Southern Cal lineman by the name of Marion Morison. He later acquired a nickname of "The Duke," and you may have heard of him under his nom de tinsel of John Wayne.
