Arizona State’s offense found a much-needed spark in running back Rachaad White in a 31-16 win over USC on Saturday night.

White finished the game with 28 carries for 202 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He also hauled in two catches for 35 yards as well.

The running back saw a heavy load in the second half as DeaMonte Trayanum did not return to the game following a fumble in the first half.

Quarterback Jayden Daniels threw two interceptions on the night, bringing his season total to seven through nine games. He had three interceptions in his previous two years for the Sun Devils.

Despite turning the ball over three times and committing a few timely penalties, Arizona State improved on its penalty total for the season, being flaggedd five times for 55 yards.

With the win, the Sun Devils become bowl eligible moving to 6-3 on the year.

ASU will travel to Seattle to take on the Washington Huskies on Saturday.
