The Pac-12 college football game between the Arizona State Sun Devils and the USC Trojans took place on Saturday night at Mountain America Stadium in Tempe.

The USC Trojans trounced Arizona State 42-28 in Tempe on Saturday night to improve to 4-0 on the year, led by senior quarterback Caleb Williams’ five touchdowns.

Even though USC had a 35-28 lead with 8:05 remaining in the fourth quarter, it wasn’t an easy task.

Williams completed 20 of his 31 passes for three touchdowns while also scoring twice rushing.

Brenden Rice got two of those receiving scores and seven catches for 133 yards. The other receiving point for USC was by Tahj Washington.

Marshawn Lloyd had 14 carries for 154 yards for the Trojans, who will play Colorado the following week.

ASU running back Cameron Skattebo had a big game for the Sun Devils, which enabled ASU to remain competitive for most of the contest.

He caught four passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in addition to having 20 carries for 111 yards on the ground. Additionally, he completed 2 of 3 passes for 42 yards, punted once, and scored a 2-point conversion throughout the contest.

Despite the setback, which brought ASU’s record to 1-3 on the year following a 29-0 shutout loss to Fresno State the previous week, the Sun Devils showed improvement.

The Sun Devils will play at California next week.

Drew Pyne, ASU’s third starting quarterback of the game, completed 21 of 36 passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns. He intercepted one pass.

One of the touchdown receptions belonged to Skattebo. Elijah Badger had the other and finished with nine receptions for 88 yards.

Although ASU entered the game as a 33.5-point underdog, it didn’t seem that way as they battled USC all night.

Final Score: USC 42, ASU 28
