ASU athletics week in review: Sun Devils look ahead to Dallas

Christian Petersen

All the latest in the world of Arizona State athletics, including ASU's victory over USC and something about new helmets?

So how about those helmets ASU fans? Judging by the reaction across social media, it seems like Sun Devil nation is spilt on the new lids. While some don't like the design, most can respect the fact that Arizona State is trying to be innovative and keep up in the every changing world of college uniforms.

How about that victory Sun Devil fans? The USC defense came into Saturday's contest having allowed a total of 44 points on the season. Arizona State rang up 62 points on Saturday en route to a 21-point victory. Taylor Kelly looked like the Taylor Kelly we all know and love. He was an efficient 23-34 for 351 yards and three touchdowns.

The Sun Devils got their rushing attack going, piling up 251 yards on the ground, and totaling 612 total yards against the Trojans.

The victory propelled Arizona State back into the top 25 for the second time this season. This week, the Sun Devils take to the national stage once again. This time, on NBC against the storied Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Before we look ahead, let's look back at the week that was in Arizona State athletics.
