The USC Trojans are on high alert. The preseason No. 1 team is looking to avoid its first three-game losing streak in 11 years and salvage its hopes to win the Pac-12 South Division.
Where: Los Angeles Coliseum; Los Angeles, California
When: 3 p.m. ET
Watch: Pac-12 Network
Forecast: Mostly sunny, high of 66 degrees
This matchup had great implications at the beginning of the year, as both teams were believed to be neck and neck fighting for the Pac-12 South crown. Unfortunately, the only only thing the teams have in common now is they are both on losing streaks.
The Arizona State Sun Devils under new head coach Todd Graham are looking like the same old Sun Devils of late. With another quick start out of the gate at 5-1, Arizona State has lost their last three games and today doesn't look to change much in that regard.
The Sun Devils have been looking for that elusive sixth victory to become bowl eligible for almost a month, but hope still remains with Washington State visiting Tempe on Nov. 17.
For USC, this is a game that they need to win to keep their season alive with two tough games to finish out the season against their crosstown rival, the No. 18 UCLA Bruins, then back home against their longtime rival, the No. 4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
Prediction: Arizona State 21, USC 42
