State of Arizona: The first 57 minutes will help alleviate the pain of the last three. Edwards’s coaching overhaul seemed to still be working, and the Sun Devil kept the script line under control until late at night.
USC: Helton will be relieved after his players have finally merged at the last possible moment, but the fact that both USC’s lanes have struggled will be an issue. The Trojan’s twists and turns are obvious, but they will only soften the celebration.
