Shows what kind of season it has been when Rashada (who has played all of two games) still leads ASU in passing touchdowns. He has 3, compared to 1 (!) for Bourguet and 2 for Pyne.There’s a chance you guys get Rashada back for the TC game. Not confident it happens, but the chance is there.
May explain why the spread is only UofA -10
On paper, yes, I would say UA is likely an overwhelming favorite. But ASU has been surprisingly tenacious in some games this year... and quite unsurprisingly terrible in others. I have no idea which team will show up next week, and UA may come in a bit overconfident (just as ASU has been prone to do in some years when the circumstances were reversed).
My, how the turns have tabled.ASU is a scrappy team and emulates the energy of its coach. Most reasonable UofA fans are expecting a close matchup similar to other TC matchups in which there was a clear discrepancy in talent between the two opponents.
As for UofA, it is not going to show up overconfident. Jedd Fisch knows the meaning of the rivalry, unlike Sumlin and RichRod, and will make sure his players are grounded. Chuck Cecil, who seemingly hates ASU more than anyone on this earth, makes sure to remind the team every year the importance of winning the TC.
If it wasnt ASU and another 3-8 team, I'd say UofA wins by 20+. But, I know this is ASU's "bowl game" and anything can happen when you play a desperate team.
