Saturday afternoon’s USC vs. ASU game will air on ABC and ESPN2 as the Trojans and Sun Devils fight to stay alive in the Pac-12 South. Here’s how to watch.
Over the last two weeks, the Trojans have battled for control in the Pac-12 South against Colorado and Utah. This week, the 2018 USC vs. ASU game won’t determine who sits atop the division standings, but it will still have major implications for the race for the conference title game.
The Trojans lost to the Utes last week, ceding a key tiebreaker while suffering their second conference loss. That means a loss this week would all but put them out of contention for the division title.
At 3-4 with three conference losses already, the Sun Devils would need to hope for a miracle to contend, but they have played teams tough so far, losing all four of their games by no more than seven points. A win over USC would prove Herm Edwards has his team going in the right direction while keeping the door slightly open for chaos in the South.
Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. Pacific on ABC and ESPN2 with Adamn Amin handling the play-by-play. Rod Gilmore will supply the color commentary while Quint Kessinich will be reporting from the sidelines.
