ASU-USC analysis from Trojans perspective

USC goes on the road for the first time this season to face Arizona State, a team it has beaten 11 consecutive times.

The gang over at We Are SC broke down this big Pac-12 South Division matchup from a Trojans perspective.

Here are some highlights.

What will be the key for a Trojans victory Saturday in Tempe?

Garry Paskwietz: This is the kind of game that Lane Kiffin has been waiting for to prove that he is ready to take that next step as a head coach. How does Kiffin do that? By not getting too cute with the offense and by using his playmakers.

Which unit or player has been the biggest surprise so far this year?

Steve Bisheff: For my money, DaJohn Harris has been the biggest surprise. Somewhat under the radar and maybe somewhat in the doghouse with Pete Carroll, Harris has emerged as a major playmaker at defensive tackle through the first three games. Every time you look up, he's in the middle of whatever is going on, stopping the run or rushing the passer. Suddenly, he looks like a serious All-Pac-12 candidate.
