USC Football takes on Arizona State Saturday night to try to advance to 5-0 on the season. SC comes into the contest as the No. 6 team in the entire nation, as they moved up in the AP Poll despite just barely squeaking out a nail-biting 17-14 W against Oregon State. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. PST this Saturday. If anyone needs a coverage map for game day this week, just click here.

The game will be on ESPN, and broadcasted by Dave Flemming as the play-by-play announcer and Rod Gilmore as the color commentator. Gilmore has Pac-12 ties, as he is a former Stanford Defensive Back.

Hopefully he'll get the chance to see another masterful USC defensive performance like they had last week, when the Trojans picked off FOUR passes and only surrendered 14 points (seven of them were off of a very short field). SC's defense hasn't been the greatest this whole season, but they always take the ball away. They lead the nation in 14 turnovers forced.

USC football also leads the nation with three pick-sixes.

This USC football game will be nationally televised on ESPN, so local listing information won't be necessary here, as everybody will be getting the game. ASU is 1-3, and entering their second game with an interim head coach in Shaun Aguano.

Aguano, the ASU Running Backs Coach, was promoted after Herm Edwards was fired by the Sun Devils after losing by nine points at home to Eastern Michigan during Week 3 of this season. SC comes into this game averaging 42.2 points per contest, which is solid, but not what it was coming into last week.

SC was averaging 49.3 points per game entering that contest, but only scored 17 last week. They'll look to get right against an Arizona State defense that has allowed 25.25 points per contest. That's tied for just 69th in football. This game is an opportunity for SC to build their confidence back up and remind the country as to why they're a top six team in the nation.
