For the second week in a row, the top-ranked and defending national champion Trojans host an undefeated and highly-ranked team, as No. 19 Arizona State comes to town for an important Pac-10 battle. Saturday's game will mark the 21st meeting between these two teams, with USC holding a slim 11-9 edge in the all-time series.

Who: ASU (19) vs. USC (1)
When: Sat., 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC)
Where: L.A. Coliseum, Los Angeles
The Trojans are coming off a heart-stopping win over then-No. 7 California, while the Sun Devils are coming off a bye. Arizona State has already matched its win total from last season and will look to snap a string of four-straight losses to the Trojans.

This game also features two of the country's best quarterbacks – Andrew Walter and Matt Leinart – who will headline the action in front of an expected sellout crowd at the Los Angeles Coliseum. Walter leads the Pac-10 in touchdown passes with 15, and Leinart is currently ranked 12th nationally in pass efficiency.
