USC Vs. ASU Score Update: Marshall, Sun Devils Up 28-22 After Three Quarters

The ASU Sun Devils entered the second half with a 21-9 lead and eyes for their first win against the USC Trojans since the turn of the millennium. That task got a little bit harder in the third quarter.

The Trojans received the second half kickoff and drove down the field for their first touchdown of the game, a 24-yard strike from Matt Barkley to Marqise Lee. USC moved the ball well through the air and Barkley seemed to find his stride after a mediocre first half.

ASU punted the ball after a series of plays, and the Trojans capitalized again with a 10-yard touchdown run by Marc Tyler. The Sun Devils managed to stop Tyler on the two-point conversion, holding USC to a 22-21 lead.

The offense came alive on the next drive though as ASU drove 76 yards on eight plays to retake the lead. Running back Cameron Marshall scored on a three-yard run to cap off the drive, giving him 114 yards and two touchdowns for the day.

The Sun Devils kept their momentum by forcing a fumble on Tyler, but had to punt the ball away six plays later. USC will begin the fourth quarter with possession and a 28-22 deficit. Let's hope for a good finish.
