Opponent Preview: Arizona State Sun Devils

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports The circus that has been the Arizona State football program reached peak levels of absurdity last week after head coach Herm Edwards was fired (seemingly on his home field, just seconds after Eastern Michigan upset the Sun Devils), becoming the second coaching casualty early in the season after Nebraska parted ways with Scott Frost one week prior. Despite the turmoil, drama, and controversy that will undoubtedly define the Herm Edwards era, the Sun Devils have been consistently good for most of the PAC-12 era, making a bowl game every season...

SB Nation Reacts: Arizona football fans are ready to go bowling

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The fans have spoken, and they’re ready for Arizona to go bowling. Earlier this week SB Nation polled our readers to see if, based on what they saw from the first two games, if they expected the UA to reach six wins and qualify for a bowl this season.

San Diego State, Mississippi State and NDSU combined to go 33-9 last season and all three either played in a bowl game or the playoffs.
