A crucial Pac 12 matchup takes shape Saturday night as the #18 USC Trojans take on the Arizona State Sun Devils.
The Trojans look to bounce back from a horrible 41-31 loss at the hands of Stanford last week.
For the Sun Devils, they will try to make it 3 in a row after dropping their season opener to Texas A&M.
Arizona State has taken 3 of the last 4 matchups against USC.
The #18 team in the nation really doesn’t get too much recognition in the beginning of the season. They’ll typically play lower tier teams out west where the games don’t end till after 1 am on the east coast.
The nation had their eyes on the Trojans last week, but a slip up to Stanford thanks to terrible defense put the Trojans off the map, for now. A win over the Sun Devils on the road could get them right back into the talks.
USC has lived up to the hype of their offense as they are averaging over 48 points a game. Typically, when you score 31, you’ll win too. QB Cody Kessler continues to shine as he has thrown for 10 touchdowns this season and 0 interceptions. The QB is completing 79 percent of his passes too.
The defensive breakdown last week was a surprise to many. USC allowed 474 total yards to Stanford and watched the Cardinal dominate the clock. It will be interesting to see how the Sun Devils play this game. Typically a more fast paced offense, they could opt to slow things down and keep the ball out of Kessler’s hands.
Spotlight will be on WR JuJu Smith-Schuster who is 5th in the nation in receiving yards per game with 144.7.
The Sun Devils have been dominating the Trojans these past couple seasons and a win this weekend would really set them up going forward.
Winners of 3 out of the last 4 in the series, Arizona State had a dramatic come from behind 38-34 win last year that saw Mike Bercovici heave a game ending bomb into the endzone.
With the offense struggling thus far into the season, the bright spot has been RB Demario Richard. The tailback has 294 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground.
He’s also shown off his receiving skills as he’s gone for 178 yards receiving and 2 more touchdowns.
Arizona State has averaged only 28.7 points a game and will try to find their offensive groove that was so dynamic last season.
