ASU won't let L.A. be a distraction
"I think it can be a distraction if you let it be," said Erickson. "We won't let it be because we're not going down there in time for it to be a distraction."
Senior safety Clint Floyd is looking forward to the trip. "It will be fun. My family is there." Floyd went to L.A.'s Crenshaw High School.
"Half of the team is from California so I think that will be a boost for us," he added. "It will be pretty much like a home game for us. We'll be pretty jacked for that."
ASU did not fare well in its last trip to L.A. in 2009, losing 23-13.
