Arizona State Vs. USC 2012: TV Schedule, Game Time, Spread And More

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

The Sun Devils hope to end a four-game losing streak as they take on the Trojans in Los Angeles on Saturday.

The Arizona State Sun Devils head to Los Angeles on Saturday to battle a USC Trojans team that is reeling after two consecutive losses pushed them out of the national championship picture.

Although the Sun Devils (5-4, 3-3 Pac-12) weren't saddled with expectations as high as those placed on the Trojans, they might be reeling just as much (or worse). After starting the season 5-1, Arizona State has dropped four consecutive games. They'll have their hands full with the Trojans' high-powered passing attack, led by quarterback Matt Barkley, and wide receivers Robert Woods and Marqise Lee.

USC (6-3, 4-3 Pac-12) will likely be hungry after a tough 62-51 loss to the No. 2 Oregon Ducks last Saturday. The Trojans will need to tighten up their pass defense against Sun Devils quarterback Taylor Kelly who was one of the most efficient passers in the Pac-12 early this season. In addition to getting torched by Oregon running back Kenjon Barner last week, USC allowed Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota to complete 20-of-23 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns in the loss.

The No. 19 Trojans are 9-point favorites against the Sun Devils, and the over/under for the contest has been set at 65.5, according to Oddsshark.com.

Kickoff for Saturday's game is scheduled for noon PT at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
