Arizona State Sun Devils

  • Vontaze Burfict, 15th-best draft prospect?

    Vontaze Burfict’s junior season at Arizona State has been much like the rest of his career: up and down and filled with what ifs. What if Burfict didn’t limp off the field every time he made a mistake? What if he wasn’t going at it with the officiating crew every game? What if he didn’t […]
  • Duel in the Desert -Breaking down the matchups

    The Duel in the Desert, the Territorial Cup, the rivalry, the game: Arizona State vs. Arizona. The 85th meeting between the schools is upon us, as the Wildcats travel north to take on the Sun Devils in Tempe. The Wildcats are basically playing for pride, as their season has gone horribly wrong. The Sun Devils […]
  • The Territorial Cup and Week 12 in the Pac-12

    Another week is upon us in the Pac-12, and hopefully it’s a week of redemption personally. I went a woeful 3-3 on conference predictions in this space last week (thanks ASU), and it’s time to bounce back. It’s another full slate of games, including two installments of natural rivalries. So let’s dive in to Week […]
  • Osweiler looks to improve on ’10 U of A game

    You probably remember Arizona State’s thrilling 30-29 double overtime win in Tucson from last December. What you probably don’t remember was the hideous first half, after which ASU led 6-0. ASU quarterback Brock Osweiler does remember. The Sun Devil quarterback, who was making just his 2nd career start, was dreadful in the first half, completing […]
  • ASU tries to stay perfect at home

    They say “Home is where the heart is.” For ASU, home is where the wins are. The Sun Devils this season are unbeaten (5-0) at Sun Devil Stadium, yet just 1-4 away from Tempe. “There is something to say for just being at home,” quarterback Brock Osweiler answered. “You have the crowd behind you. You’re […]
  • ESPN insider wonders what’s wrong with Sun Devils, Wildcats

    There’s two FBS schools in Arizona: Arizona State University and University of Arizona. Both have been around since before 1900 and both sport excellent academic opportunities, but there’s another thing these schools have in common. The number zero. Combined these schools have zero national championships in football. Arizona has seen plenty of success in basketball, […]
  • Devils shoot blanks in loss to Pepperdine

    TEMPE, AZ— Pepperdine got hot from behind the three-point arc in the first half, and lived at the free throw line in the 2nd half in a 66-60 win over Arizona State in front of 4,127 fans at Wells Fargo Arena on Tuesday night. The Waves knocked down 7 of 9 three-point attempts before halftime, […]
  • ASU looks to correct lapses on defense

    In recent seasons it’s been the team’s greatest strength. However, in recent weeks it’s been the team’s greatest weakness. The ASU defense has allowed 999 total yards in back to back losses at UCLA and Washington State. “Giving up the big play, that’s obviously what has happened to us the last couple of weeks,” said […]
  • Arizona State’s season ‘not totally gone’

    The ASU goals at the beginning of the season were to win the Pac-12 South Division, play in the inaugural Pac-12 Championship Game and compete in the Rose Bowl. That hasn’t changed, despite losses in each of the last two weeks. “It’s funny,” said offensive lineman Dan Knapp, “how it all worked out but our […]
  • Will changing the coach change the future?

    In the days before the annual rivalry game against Arizona, the natives are getting restless in Tempe. “This is the year,” they were told. A season filled with promise after consecutive wins to end last season and a veteran-laden roster returning for action in 2011. And for awhile, it looked like the promises would pay […]
  • Dennis Erickson talks job security, desire to keep coaching

    To say Dennis Erickson’s seat is getting warm would be an understatement. Thought to be in line for a contract extension only a few weeks ago, the only line many want to see him in is the one with an “unemployment” sign hanging above. Tuesday Arizona Sports 620’s John Gambadoro, who wrote that it’s time […]
  • ASU players aware of coach’s hot seat

    It’s hard to ignore. “I’d be lying if I said we weren’t aware of it,” said quarterback Brock Osweiler. “Obviously you read things and you hear things,” added defensive lineman Bo Moos. What’s being read and what’s being heard is that their head coach is on the proverbial hot seat. Follow @theAdamGreen
  • Erickson on hot seat: ‘I can’t worry about that’

    In October it seemed like a foregone conclusion. Dennis Erickson would receive a contract extension at the end of the season. Now, as the calendar has flipped to November there’s a considerable amount of debate regarding an extension. Consecutive road losses to UCLA and Washington State has thrust Erickson’s future as the Sun Devils head […]
  • Sun Devils and Wildcats set to battle for 85th time

    When Arizona State and Arizona take the field Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium it will be the 85th time the teams have met in the “Duel in the Desert,” and the first since last season’s stunning 30-29 ASU win in double overtime. The Sun Devils reclaimed the oldest trophy in college football – the Territorial […]
  • Erickson on WSU loss: ‘Very, very, very, very disturbing’

    A couple of weeks ago it looked as if the Arizona State Sun Devils would cruise down the stretch of their schedule and head to the Pac-12 Championship Game as the representatives of the South and take on either Oregon or Stanford. For all intents and purposes, the “hard” part of the Sun Devils’ schedule […]
