Longhorns, Bears must recover quickly
Arizona State at USC
It is a game with just as many implications as last week's, but Carroll's team won't take the Sun Devils as seriously. The question is how long it will take the Trojans to flip on the switch in this game? The way undefeated Arizona State has been playing, it better not take too long.
