Once again the Trojans have managed to become irrelevant pretty quickly.
Their only hope for salvation of this season, and Clay Helton, is to start winning games agains.
Despite that discrepancy in records that is what is expected here. Just look at that hefty spread. hard to believe.
The Sun Devils love to tease so I guess we should not be too surprised at the last of respect for their 4-0 start. Last week they won another barn burner against Cal.
They do not look like playoffs material but you have to give them credit for not being boring.
Arizona State Sun Devils
ASU has found themselves in some fun offensive battles this season.A few weeks back they scored 68 points to fend off Texas Tech and last week they put up 51 to take down Cal in their first conference game.
Their success is definitely feeding the stereotypes of the PAC12 but if it works, who cares…and all of this is with a first time starter at quarterback who is probably a better running than thrower at this point.
Their defense has been very porous but primarily against the pass.
That is not a strength of USC even though they might have the best receiver in all of college football. The question is whether the Sun Devils can play any defense against anyone.
Maybe they are so lame on that side of the ball that teams can run all over them too. They way they have been doing to their opponents.
At some point talent has to play to it and that has not happened this year with quarterback Max Browne of USC.
After biding his time he has been nothing more than just a guy, despite his recruitment clippings.
I believe that USC is among the more talented teams in the country but when you are not getting what you need from the QB position it is hard to put the rest together.
The three losses are bad but I am not sure they have a bad loss yet given they were all on the road.
Whoever gets to play QB in this one should be licking his lips right about now.
ASU is giving up 404 yards through the air. Some of that is situational and some of it is because they can’t play defense worth a lick. This is the perfect kind of game to give their signal caller some confidence.
Once they establish the lead they can pound away with their running game. Assuming they can stop ASU at least some of the time.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Prediction
Given the way that USC has struggled I was surprised to see that they are such heavy favourites. I think the early line is reflecting the anticipated action more than the power ratings of the teams coming into this one.
Tread carefully on your numbers.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Over
I know the number is not posted yet but I will take the over unless it is silly.
Four of the past six in the series have gone over and it looks like Arizona State has enough offensive skill to move the ball against average defenses, not just the porous ones.
These teams are going to trades scores often. I like USC to win by a touchdown.
