The Trojans are 10.5 point favorites in their upcoming matchup against the Arizona State Sun Devils.
Both teams are reeling after disappointing defeats. The Trojans fell to the Oregon Ducks 62-51 on Saturday, while the Sun Devils lost to Oregon State, 36-26.
The Trojans still have a double-digit opening spread by virtue of their home field advantage and a potent offense that did manage to score more than 50 points against Oregon.
USC and Arizona State's matchup has potential Pac-12 South implications down the line, as both teams currently trail the UCLA Bruins (7-2, 4-2) atop the standings. The Sun Devils are a half game back of USC and one game back overall. A win for Arizona State would likely catapult them back into the AP Top 25 conversation and put the hot seat firmly on USC head coach Lane Kiffin.
