  • Oklahoma and Oklahoma St. seem ready for the Pac

    Larry Scott may have said he is not interested in seeing the Pac-12 expand again, but that doesn’t mean schools aren’t lining up to join the conference. According to Orange Bloods, Oklahoma will apply for membership in the Pac-12 by the end of September, and Oklahoma State is expected to follow suit. Would the Big […]
  • Arizona State’s Pflugrad has huge game in win against Missouri

    When Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler needed to make a play he looked to wide receiver Aaron Pflugrad. At least that’s the way it seemed. Pflugrad caught eight of Osweiler’s 24 completions in the Sun Devils’ 37-30 overtime win against the Missouri Tigers. Saying those catches went for big gains would be putting it quite […]
  • Arizona State’s ‘Blackout’ brings out Fitzgerald, Nash

    Arizona State’s nationally televised Friday night matchup against Missouri had quite the star power — and we’re not talking about between the lines.

  • ASU readies for Missouri, running QB

    It’s not like ASU has never faced a running quarterback before. But even knowing a quarterback’s strength is his legs more than his arm ahead of time still makes for a tough assignment. “It makes our job a little bit harder,” said Sun Devils senior linebacker Colin Parker, who was the team’s second leading tackler […]
  • Sun Devils outside for practice, inside the top 25

    It’s not unusual for ASU football to practice outside in September. It is unusual, however, for them to practice outdoors when temperatures push 110-degrees as they did late Tuesday afternoon. Remember, there is that practice bubble just a few feet away. “Not so much for the elements,” head coach Dennis Erickson explained for why they […]
  • ASU plans to keep facing difficult non-conference competition

    PHOENIX – The Arizona State Sun Devils are primed for their school’s biggest non-conference game in quite some time on Friday when they face the Missouri Tigers in front of a nationally televised audience.

  • ASU coach Erickson: ‘I don’t think one game shapes anything’

    Arizona State’s game against No. 19 Missouri is big, of that there is little doubt. After all, it represents a chance for the Sun Devils to show the entire nation they are for real, helping to further validate the preseason expectations placed on them. Still, that doesn’t mean the result will shape the season in […]
  • Sun Devils ranked in USA Today top 25

    It didn’t take long for the Sun Devils to climb into the top 25. The USA Today Coaches Poll was released Tuesday and it has ASU ranked 23rd in the country following the team’s 48-14 home win over UC Davis. Friday’s opponent, Missouri, is just ahead at No. 19, making the matchup all the more […]
  • Osweiler: ‘We would like to go faster’

  • ASU goes dark Friday night

    Except for a couple of hours on a Tuesday afternoon back in April, ASU has kept its brand new black football uniforms in the closet. The closet doors open this week. ASU will wear the black Nike uniforms and helmets Friday when they play nationally ranked Missouri in what is being called a “Black Out” […]
  • Osweiler drinking on the job – to avoid cramping

    Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler brought a friend with him Monday to his weekly press conference: a gallon of Cytomax sports performance drink, already half empty. “I definitely thought I was hydrated,” he said looking back at Thursday’s game against UC Davis in which he twice cramped up on the field in the third quarter. […]
  • ESPN: Pac-16 idea is back on the table

    The Pac-12 is not yet a year old and it could expand to the Pac-16 soon, though there is not an exact time frame. According to ESPN, Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech would be the four schools that would be added to the current Pac-12. Current Big 12 member Texas A&M said they […]
  • What we learned: Arizona State vs. UC Davis
