Arizona State vs. USC score update: Sun Devils tied 7-7 with Trojans

The Arizona State Sun Devils are tied, 7-7, with the USC Trojans after one quarter of play in Los Angeles.

ASU is looking to bounce back from a three-game losing streak to become bowl eligible, and they got off to a hot start.

The Sun Devils got the scoring started with 10:51 left in the first quarter. Wide receiver Chris Coyle got behind the defense and Taylor Kelly hit him with a 31-yard touchdown strike. That capped a five-play, 38-yard drive that followed a fumble by USC wideout Marqise Lee. The star would make up for the mistake a few drives later.

USC's offense struggled to move the ball in its first three drives, but got a quick strike from Lee to tie the game last in the quarter. Matt Barkley hit the receiver on an 80-yard touchdown for USC's first points of the day.

Things would get wild after that. ASU fumbled the ensuing kickoff back to the Trojans. On the next play, ASU intercepted Barkley to get the ball back. The Sun Devils have the ball to start the second quarter.
