Watch Gary Klein and Lindsey Thiry preview USC vs. Arizona State

USC plays Arizona State in the Trojans' Pac-12 South division opener on Saturday at the Coliseum.

The Sun Devils defeated the Trojans, 62-41, last season in the desert, which resulted in the firing of former Coach Lane Kiffin after the game.


USC has won seven consecutive games against Arizona State at the Coliseum.

Two weeks after a loss at Boston College, USC rebounded with a 35-10 victory over Oregon State last Saturday.

Arizona State was beaten by UCLA, 62-27, last week.

Times USC beat reporter Gary Klein joins me to preview Saturday's game.

Here's the rundown:

  • The rematch between USC and Arizona State

  • Adjustments to USC's secondary
