People will say they had a 62-41 final score with Todd Graham's Arizona State Sun Devils defeating Lane Kiffin's USC Trojans with ASU coming out on top. But those people would be lying to you. Not one person on this earth knew they would witness a Pac-12 South shootout with over 100 points scored between the two teams. Here is some of the better twitter commentary from throughout the game.
Fair to say that the two members from .@JourneyOfficial blasted it out of the park with their rendition of the the national anthem tonight?— Devils Digest (@DevilsDigest) September 29, 2013
We thought it was a little long. In fact, members of the press actually sat down in their seats thinking it was over only to have to stand back up.
Will Sutton eating!! Nom nom nom. #ASU— Ty Whiley (@TeeWhiley) September 29, 2013
ASU commit Tyler Whiley was excited about Will Sutton's first sack of the season. He came out early and responded to media (myself included) who criticized him for his lack of sacks so far this season.
Fans still streaming into Sun Devil Stadium as ASU streams over USC in first four minutes..— Bill Plaschke (@BillPlaschke) September 29, 2013
The LA Times columnist of ESPN's Around the Horn fame was in the press box as ASU took a quick 7-0 lead.
Observation: USC's Marquis Lee's give-a-crap meter is at 0.0.— Tim Ring (@timring3TV) September 29, 2013
The man is headed to the NFL and with the way USC is currently playing who can blame him? He hauled in 7 catches for 93 yards.
Why can't ASU just line up and punt the ball, getting tired of these pooch punts— John Gambadoro (@Gambo620) September 29, 2013
Choose someone and stay with them. Alex Garoutte also got a chance to punt tonight giving ASU four punters in four games. Who would have thought their would be a punting controversy?
RIP USC Vaunted Defense Narrative 8/29/13 - 9/28/13— Josh Kelman (@JoshKelman) September 29, 2013
This is so true. No one would have guessed ASU would put up over sixty points and have over 600 yards of total offense.
lob to Strong in the end zone, ruled out of bounds, CTG is challenging. I can't tell. Press box is 14 miles away from that corner— Chris Lewis (@chrislewis910) September 29, 2013
It really is, make sure to bring your binoculars to sit up there. Luckily they have televisions and Strong's toes were clearly out of bounds.
Jaelen Strong. How many back shoulders does that guy have??— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) September 29, 2013
Seven. He had seven catches for 103 yards on the night.
@JaelenStrong has 3 consecutive 100 yard games vs Wisconsin, Stanford + USC. Talk about stepping up under the bright lights. I love it.— Thomas Melton (@TMeltonScouting) September 29, 2013
NFL scouts already talking up Strong. He drew Demaryius Thomas comparisons from scouts as well.

Lane Kiffin angry. Lane Kiffin smash. pic.twitter.com/OqdPysFcHL— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) September 29, 2013
Looks like someone who might get fired pretty soon (Or within a few hours). What coach wouldn't be this upset with USC playing so poorly?
Fun fact: USC gave up 44 points in its first four games.— Shane Dale (@territorialcup) September 29, 2013
Everyone was ready for a low scoring tight game and it just wasn't the case.
#USC WR Marqise Lee is leaving the game on a cart— Brad Denny (@BDenny29) September 29, 2013
This was really unfortunate. Everyone wants to go up against the best and Lee is the best at the wide receiver position in college football. Osahon Irabor did what he could against Lee even coming up with an interception.

ASU is 9-0 when leading at halftime under Todd Graham— ASUDevils.com (@ASUDevilscom) September 29, 2013
Fantastic stat here and definitely one to keep in mind going forward.
Because you want your tailback throwing deep on 4th and 2…#LaneKiffin— Vince Marotta (@Vincemarotta) September 29, 2013
Madden ended up with a passer rating of negative 200 because it was his only passing attempt and he threw it for an interception.
Got damn run D gotta tighten up— Vontaze Burfict (@King55Tez) September 29, 2013
You tell them Vontaze. When Mr. Burfict speaks, it's probably wise if you listen.
No wonder, tough night for the USC play caller.
ASU went 86 games without scoring 60 from 2005-2011. Under Coach Graham it has scored 60 3 times (63 NAU, 62 Navy, 62 USC) @cmorganfoxaz— Doug Tammaro (@DougTammaro) September 29, 2013
Not Koetter, not Erickson, but Graham. This can be attributed to the high paced offense Graham has put in place. In fact ASU had two drives under a minute in length Saturday night.
Alright sorry I know it's a lot of Kiffin but the man's coaching career is crumbling before the eyes of the nation on national television and it is absolutely fascinating to watch.
Kelly insisted on the offensive line being included in the press conference.
I imagine very few words were exchanged.
Big Win!!! #TurnUp— Jaelen Strong (@JaelenStrong) September 29, 2013
