TEMPE, ARIZONA (September 26, 2015) The #19 University of Southern California Trojans did not need to use the triple option offense in their victory over the Arizona State University Sun Devils. Instead, they relied on the arm of Trojan senior quarterback Cody Kessler (Bakersfield, CA) who threw for 379 yards, five touchdowns, and finished the game with a 197 quarterback rating in the 42-14 win over the Devils on Saturday, September 26, at Sun Devils Stadium.

In the first three games of the season, the Devils faced triple option offenses, allowing an average of over 215 yards rushing per game. In this game, they were able to hold the Trojans to less than 100 yards rushing. However, with a total of four turnovers, missed tackles, and two missed field goals, the Devils’ Head Coach Todd Graham stated, in a concerned manner, “They executed, we didn’t”.

DJ Foster makes history.
The Devils’ senior DJ Foster (Scottsdale, AZ) becomes the 4th player in the history of NCAA football to receive 2000 yards and rush for 2000 yards.

The Trojans’ Kessler also achieved a prestigious record in this game. His total career touchdown passes ranks him as third in the history of Trojan football.

The Trojans (3-1, 1-1 PAC-12) will host the Washington Huskies in a Pac-12 conference game on October 8, at 6 p.m. PT. The game will broadcast on ESPN.

The Devils (2-2, 0-1 PAC-12) travel to Pasadena, CA to take on Pac-12 rival UCLA Bruins  on Saturday, Oct 3 at 4:30 p.m. AZ time. The game will be covered by FOX.
