Ronnie Lott talks about ASU vs. USC

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

One of the best safeties of all time spoke with House of Sparky this week to break down ASU's game with USC.

Few players who have ever suited up on Sundays have been better than Ronnie Lott. The man some refer to as the best safety in professional football history, Lott has remained involved in the football world for years following his retirement.

SB Nation's Arizona State blog, House of Sparky, recently interviewed Lott and asked him a couple of questions for this weekend's game against USC. Lott was an All-American with the Trojans and now serves as an analyst for the Pac-12 Network. In order for the Sun Devils to pull the upset for the second year in a row, they'll need to replicate the pace they played at last season, says Lott:

"Anytime you play at home, in my mind, that starts as an advantage. It starts with USC finding a way to do what they do best, and that is to strike when they can, but also protecting the football. If they are able to do that, they'll have a shot at winning this game. But by no means is this a gimme. Arizona State beat them last year, and I believe that Arizona State feels like they can come into this game, and if they can keep up the pace the way that they are capable of doing, that they have a shot at winning this football game."

It will be interesting to see if the Devils can finally break through against a quality opponent. ASU beat up on a weak schedule in the first half of the year, and now they've been exposed by a couple of good teams. A win today would go a long way in securing a strong bowl bid next month.
