Oh please Higher Power of all things big and small I have a special request regarding a certain game of college football On this Saturday, this upcoming Saturday ... A rivalry game will be played Not cross town, nor inner state It’s a rivalry that is far too great It began in 1926 and, some say, it may even be the greatest intersectional rivalry of them all
You see, Higher Power, The University of Southern California’s Trojans are traveling to South Bend this week
and …. we …. NEED …. a win
A Jeweled Shillelagh is the winner’s prize But the real gain is pride
Oh please Higher Power … please If not for USC then do it for me I can’t tell you why at least not in public and maybe not at all but I need this win to make certain things right it could change the past … at last!
Oh please Higher Power, give Barkley consistency His pass completion ratio must change He needs to be good enough to win big games And this could be the biggest And after last year’s loss And UCLA coming up in a few weeks And the Bowl suspension over soon He needs this double U too
