    Michigan State will be looking for revenge 1:00 P.M. on Saturday.

    It will be interesting to see if Jayden Daniels can rise to the challenge. Our running game was way better last year, but stifled against Michigan State. Its worse this year, so I expect Daniels will be throwing the ball quite a bit, and on the run often.

    I have low expectations, but would love it if ASU kept it close. Our D has been playing well, but fading in the 4th. We may see more of that Saturday especially if the offense can't stay on the field.

    I am not optimistic but I am hopeful. Sloppy uninspired play will not get it done against this level of competition.

    Mich St does not have a great offense at all. If our defense shows up, they alone can keep us in the game for most of the game.
    But on offense, I see our young QB being terrorized all day...
    Should be a low scoring affair with tons of punts...
    21 - 3 Spartans.

    The Sun Devils need to open up their passing attack to set up the run something I don't see them doing with a freshman quarterback and their offensive line woes. Hopefully the defense can keep it close.

    Yeah, hard to see any way we win this, given the offense issues in general, and OL problems specifically, of the first couple weeks. And on the road, no less.

    Hopefully, it won't be a blowout.

    Michigan State has held their first two opponents to minus yardage on the ground.

    Although Tulsa and Western Michigan are not household names it speaks to the task ahead. The Devils will need to pass the ball to have a chance.

    Again, the game starts at 1 p.m. today on Fox (channel 10) Arizona.

    Not a bad start by the Sun Devils a couple first down on offense and just picked up a turnover here in the first quarter

    I like that the Devils have coming out passing.

    If Daniels had not overthrown that 3rd and 1 pass the receiver would have probably been gone.

    They've been on the field a lot though hopefully they won't get worn out in the fourth

    Suns Devils with the field goal.

    That personal foul penalty wasn't very obvious.

    Michigan State misses their 2nd field goal. ASU leads 3-0 at the half.
