Arizona State Vs. USC score update: Trojans lead 28-17 after 3rd

The Arizona State Sun Devils trail the USC Trojans, 28-17, after three quarters of play Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles. ASU has been able to take advantage of USC mistakes to stay within striking distance, but the Trojans took over in the last half of the third quarter.

Arizona State's Carl Bradford made a spectacular play to start the third, knocking down a Matt Barkley pass and grabbing the ball himself for the interception. The Sun Devils would move down the field after the turnover before stalling inside the 10. ASU was forced to settle for a field goal.

All 17 of Arizona State's points have come off of USC turnovers.

The Trojans came back to capture the lead for the first time on the ensuing possession. A nine-play, 59-yard drive was finished by a 5-yard touchdown run from Curtis McNeal.

A failed fourth-and-1 attempt may prove to be the death blow as the Sun Devils gave the ball back to the Trojans at midfield with just more than four minutes to go in the quarter. USC would face their own fourth-and-1 just minutes later, and convert on their way to another touchdown.
