A statistical look at Saturday's game shows some interesting advantages in every facet of the game
For Sun Devil fans, the second team on the "Most Hated List" behind Arizona is the USC Trojans, and this Saturday, the Sun Devils will travel to Pasadena to battle the Trojans in a match-up of teams looking to snap some late season skids.
We compiled the key numbers from each team into one handy chart to see which team had the advantages. Taking a look at the chart, a few things jump out:
- The ASU pass defense was torched last week, and face their toughest test of the year. Can the Sun Devils shut down Marqise Lee and Robert Woods? No. But how much can they limit their damage?
- Thanks to the utter blitzkrieging at the hands of Oregon, USC's defensive ranks are all behind the Sun Devils, who have struggled in their own right over the last three weeks.
- Both teams are in the top 10 in both sacks and tackles-for-loss. This could be a battle of big plays, both offensively and defensively.
