    TEMPE, AZ — The Arizona Wildcats, in the midst of a deeply disappointing season, found enough juice in the fourth quarter to rally and beat their arch-rival Arizona State 31-27 at Sun Devil Stadium on Saturday night.

  • ASU can still play in Pac-12 Championship Game

    According to the Pac-12 notes (prior to the game): “Basically, Arizona State will benefit from a three-team tie, or a two-team tie with Utah.” The tie-breaker for multiple-team ties: 1.

  • Sun Devils improve, but fall short to New Mexico

    After losing in ugly fashion to Pepperdine on Tuesday night, ASU head coach Herb Sendek talked about needing to improve in a lot of different areas if his team wanted to have a chance to beat New Mexico on Friday night. There was improvement, but not enough as the Sun Devils fell to New Mexico […]
  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
