Pitchfork Preview: Sun Devils face Utes in final home game of season
Arizona State gets ready for its last home game of the season as the Sun Devils welcome the 15th-ranked Utah Utes to town Thursday night at Sun Devil Stadium.
The Sun Devils and Utes are both coming off a bye week, but prior to that, ASU suffered a 54-35 loss to Oregon where it allowed a season-high 734 yards. Meanwhile, Utah is looking to bounce back after a disappointing 31-24 loss to No. 4 Washington, in which Utes QB Troy Williams threw for 163 yards and two touchdowns.
Thursday’s matchup marks the sixth straight year the Sun Devils will play a Thursday Night game. Arizona State leads the all-time series against Utah 20-7. The Utes beat ASU last year in Salt Lake City, marking their first victory in the rivalry since Utah joined the Pac-12 in 2011.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and the game can be heard on ESPN Phoenix 620 AM.
