ASU With "Strong" Performance In Southern California

After a tough blowout loss to UCLA a week ago, the Arizona St. Sun Devils traveled to Southern California to try and forget about their terrible performance on the national stage.  They faced the USC Trojans a team looking to improve to 3-0 in the Pac 12.

The Trojans seemed to be in control the entire game.  But ASU just wouldn't give up.  Back up Quarterback Mike Bercovici, in just his second start, was spectacular.  He threw for 510 yards and 5 touchdowns.  3 of those touchdowns went to Jalen Strong, including the game winner as time expired.  The offense kept the Devils in the game and allowed for the dramatic finish.

Strong caught 10 passes for 202 yards and solidified himself  as one of the Pac 12's best receivers.  Strong was one of the reason ASU even had a chance.  He is a threat every tome he touches the ball.  Strong showed his athleticism on the games final play.  ASU QB Bercovici dropped back and chucked the ball 46 yards in hopes of a miracle.  The problem was the ball fell short of the end zone.  Strong made the great adjustment and caught the ball and walked into the end zone.  Bercovici and ASU had their miracle and a much needed Pac 12 victory.
