LOS ANGELES (AP) Although Caleb Williams and No. 6 Southern California never trailed against Arizona State, the Trojans also couldn't pull away during a fairly average first half by their newly ambitious standards under coach Lincoln Riley.
"It just wasn't quite us," Riley said. "Wasn't quite the edge that we're used to playing with, and that we expect to play with."
Williams and the Trojans found their edge in the second half, and they used it to slice straight through the Sun Devils on the way to another big win.
