First real test for the Devils. First road game. Which ASU team shows up? The one who commits penalties left and right and gives up easy drives for points or the more efficient version?

4 Sun Devils expected back from injury to play against ASU, including Chip and Badger

I think BYU is a good team with a lot of skills, but they may struggle to stay with ASU physically. Of course, they beat Utah which gives me pause.

Some updated game notes.

BY JAKE ANDERSON Arizona Sports:

— Edwards said all running backs will be available against BYU, meaning sophomore DeaMonte “Chip” Trayanum (high ankle sprain) and freshman Daniyel Ngata (thumb) won’t be held out due to their respective injuries.

— The ASU head coach on the decision to bring junior kicker Cristian Zendejas back into the mix so quickly:

“We needed some consistency. … We’re going to get into some games where we need to make sure when we get inside the 30, we have a guy 90% of the time or more can make and who has done it. And he’s done it in some big games. He’s won some games with his leg for us. He was happy about the opportunity to come back because he didn’t go anywhere, so it kind of worked out for everybody.”

Pretty awesome look. I think BYU is going to wear white, so this will be a great contrast.

I thought this guy made some good points:

Call me a pessimist, but I don’t see ASU winning this one…especially if they play how they did the first 2 games. Maybe they step up big time, and somehow pull off a W, but they would have to play infinitely better than they’ve shown thus far.

If the Sun Devils minimize penalties and avoid turnovers I think they can win.

They can't be their own worst enemy.

Running back DeaMonte “Chip” Trayanum will not play against BYU. Neither will defensive back D.J. Taylor.

I was hoping Trayanum would be able to play to give the running game a boost.

ASU fumbles on opening kickoff. Ugh.

It shouldn't have been brought out of endzone.

This sucks. I don't get ESPNews so I'm stuck until the other game is over.

edit: I found the game on the Spanish feed. So I can watch it, I just don't know what the announcers are saying.
