ASU Football Opponent Primer: USC - The first of Arizona State's nine Pac-12 contests next season begins with a visit from USC. The Trojans will be looking for their first win in Tempe since 2009.

Fall camp practice schedule released - No, not a game. We're talking about practice.

Sun Devils land commitment from TE Jared Bubak - Head coach Todd Graham received some great news on Monday night when 3-star tight end Jared Bubak announced his commitment to the maroon and gold. The Lincoln, Nebraska, product is the ninth player in ASU's 2016 recruiting class.

ASU Basketball

It was revealed back in May that Arizona State senior Roosevelt Scott would be transferring, and yesterday Jon Rothstein reported that Central Missouri had landed the wing. Scott scored in double figures twice last season for the Sun Devils.

One addition and one subtraction were made to the maroon and gold's 2015-16 non-conference schedule this past week. We now know that ASU will face NC State in their Legends Classic semifinal game, which will be played on November 23 at the Barclays Center in New York. They will then face either LSU or Marquette in the final game of the tournament.

Bobby Hurley and company will not, however, be facing St. John's next December. The previously reported holiday meeting in Las Vegas has been called off as the Red Storm will instead play South Carolina on the same day in Uncasville, Connecticut. It is not known what Arizona State will do to fill the cancellation.

ASU Golf

Former Sun Devil Phil Mickelson finished in a tie for 20th in last weekend's Open Championship, but the 45-year-old was in contention all the way up until his 71st hole. Just two strokes off the lead and standing on the 17th tee in Monday's final round, Mickelson knew he had to do something special on the final two holes to give himself a shot at winning.

Instead, he pushed his drive way off to the right, the ball eventually coming to rest on a balcony at a hotel adjacent to the course. He would card a triple bogey on the hole, ending an improbable early morning run up the leaderboard.

ASU Baseball

The always enjoyable Eric Sorenson published his annual "Best & Worst" list for the previous college baseball season yesterday, and the maroon and gold got his nod for the best game he saw in person. Taking home the title was ASU's 4-3, opening night victory against Oklahoma State, the game ending on a walk-off home run by Colby Woodmansee. The win has received plenty of accolades this summer, most notably when it was named the best moment of the year in our very own #SunDevilMoments series.
