Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly likes how linebacker Dan Fox reacted to losing his starting job earlier this season. 

Kelly says Fox was livid, but didn't let his anger disrupt the defense. Instead, he got to work. 

Fox concedes to being upset when coaches started Jarrett Grace ahead of him after three games. The senior who had learned to play the middle linebacker position despite missing spring practice after undergoing shoulder surgery says he focused on working through adversity. 

He was ready when a broken leg ended Grace's season two weeks ago, responding with a fumble recovery and an interception for a touchdown against Arizona State. 

The Irish (4-2) will be counting on Fox Saturday as they try to beat USC (4-2) at home for the first time since 2001.
