Arizona State Sun Devils

  • Another opponent comments on Burfict

    Leading up to their game against Arizona State on September 24th, several members of the USC Trojans were asked about facing feared Sun Devil linebacker Vontaze Burfict. They didn’t hold their tongues. “I’ll drill him,” offensive tackle Matt Kalil said. Quarterback Matt Barkley referred to Burfict as a “dirty player”–a tactic that drew a reprimand […]
  • Devils at Rose Bowl and Week 10 in the Pac-12

    The calendar turns to November, the month where a lot will be determined in the Pac-12. The bad part is that none of it will be determined this week. It’s a full slate of games in the conference for the second straight week, but none of them are all that exciting on paper. In fact, […]
  • ASU won’t let L.A. be a distraction

    No one likes it when their plane arrives late. Friday though Dennis Erickson will insist on it. He wants a late—or later, arrival into Los Angeles to avoid the distractions that come with the nation’s second-largest city. “I think it can be a distraction if you let it be,” said Erickson. “We won’t let it […]
  • How does San Antonio on December 29th sound?

    Bowl eligibility. That phrase shouldn’t excite the fan base of any halfway decent college football program. Unless you haven’t sniffed that phrase in three years. The Arizona State Sun Devils reached bowl eligibility for the first time since 2007 with their 48-14 win over Colorado on Saturday night, meaning fans of the fork can start […]
  • ASU with bigger goals than bowl eligibility

    Becoming bowl eligible would’ve been celebrated by ASU last season and even the season before. But not this year. Not with a season where the expectations are much higher than just reaching the post-season and any one of the 35 different bowl games. “Obviously that’s a first goal of many we’re trying to achieve this […]
  • Osweiler dresses up for Halloween

    Dennis Erickson had just wrapped up his weekly press conference when he returned for a second round of questions. Though this time he had grown several inches. 6-foot-8 Brock Osweiler, the Sun Devils star quarterback, walked in for his own Monday press conference dressed up as his head coach for Halloween.

  • Sun Devils’ win over CU doesn’t impress voters

    The Arizona State Sun Devils left no doubt on Saturday night , taking apart their new Pac-12 rival Colorado 48-14 in front of a Homecoming crowd at Sun Devil Stadium. With the win, the Sun Devils pushed their record to 6-2 and 4-1 in conference play. Apparently the voters in both the AP and USA […]
  • Six Points: Devils pound overmatched Buffs 48-14

    The bye week did Arizona State some good. Dennis Erickson’s 21st-ranked Sun Devils were saddled with a 14-point loss to the Oregon Ducks two weeks ago. Two full weeks of marinating in that feeling of defeat. Two weeks of agonizing over plays that could have been made and opportunities missed. But once the Devils ran […]

  • Sun Devils picked 9th in Pac-12

    Scribes who cover the Pac-12 have tabbed the Arizona State Sun Devils to finish 9th in the conference in a preseason poll released Friday morning from Pac-12 Media Day in Los Angeles. Head coach Herb Sendek’s squad returns eight players and seven letter winners from last year’s 12-19 team that finished last in the conference. […]
  • ASU with an easy(?) test against Colorado

    On paper it would appear #21 ASU should have little trouble against Colorado. The Buffaloes are 1-7 and 0-4 in their first year of PAC- 12 play. They have lost five straight, six straight against ranked teams and 21 straight away from home. In addition, Colorado has lost 11 regulars in its two deep—including six […]
  • Mr. Threet goes to Washington

    Steven Threet is used to the spotlight. It comes with the job of playing quarterback for a major college football program. But those days are over. Yet the spotlight remains. The former ASU quarterback found himself in our nation’s capital last week speaking in front of the U.S. Senate. “My C-SPAN debut,” he said with […]
  • Homecoming in Tempe and Week 9 in Pac-12

    We head into the last weekend of October, and things are starting to look a little more clear in the Pac-12–or maybe half of it. The Pac-12 South sees 21st-ranked Arizona State clearly in the catbird seat, while the intrigue is still thick in the North, with Stanford and Oregon still undefeated in conference play […]
  • ESPN Insider: The quicker to re-sign Erickson the better

    It’s no secret that Arizona State head coach is enjoying one of his better seasons. The Devils are leading the Pac-12 South, in control of their own destiny to reach the Pac-12 championship game and, given the outlook of everyone else in the division, the team could be atop for quite some time. So it […]
  • ASU getting pass rush help

    Teams always believe they can get more pressure on the quarterback. ASU believes they’ll be able to do just that with the return of sophomore defensive end Junior Onyeali. “Having Junior back (Saturday against Colorado) makes a big difference,” explained head coach Dennis Erickson. Onyeali, who led the Sun Devils and all PAC-10 freshmen with […]
