Upon further review: ASU-USC

Our 'Upon Further Review' piece breaks down every individual play from ASU's 41-20 loss to the USC Trojans.

In this week's 'Upon further review' piece, SunDevilSource breaks down every individual play from Arizona State's 41-20 loss to the USC Trojans and provides additional analysis on the Sun Devils' play-calling and personnel usage.

Each successful play for ASU is highlighted in green while each bad play for the Sun Devils is highlighted in red to provide additional context on each snap. 

If you want to know how Trojans' defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast adjusted USC's scheme against specific ASU formations, which players were responsible for ASU coverage and tackling breakdowns, and how the Sun Devils' offense compared with sophomore quarterback Manny Wilkins and redshirt freshman quarterback Brady White in the game, this week's 'Upon further review' piece will provide you with a comprehensive look at Saturday's game that takes you inside of each play.

Why did an ASU offense that came into Saturday's contest averaging more than 48 points per game struggle against a USC defense that didn't play particularly well to this point in the season? 

What critical second quarter lapses caused the tide of the game to turn in the Trojans' favor? 

How did the Sun Devils adjust to a USC quarterback, Sam Darnold, making his second career start and why were the Sun Devils unable to shut down the Trojans' passing attack?

Answers to all of these questions and more are available to SunDevilSource subscribers in the Devils' Sanctuary each week in our 'Upon further review' piece.
