Arizona State Sun Devils

  • Trojans view Sun Devils as cheap shot artists

    Arizona State has not beaten USC in its last 11 tries, but with Pac-12 South supremacy on the line Saturday you better believe they’ll be extra motivated to get a win at Sun Devil Stadium. Does that mean they’ll be more willing to play dirty? The Trojans think so. According to Mark Saxon of, […]
  • Davon Coleman ‘ready to step up’ for ASU

    His head coach says he’s got a bright future. Well, the future is now. Sophomore defensive end Davon (day-VON) Coleman is expected to move into the starting lineup Saturday night when ASU hosts USC in the Sun Devils’ first-ever PAC-12 game. Coleman, a junior college transfer, will replace Junior Onyeali, who is scheduled to undergo […]
  • Mark Schlabach betting on Pac 12 expansion

    ESPN’s Mark Schlabach joined Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf show to discuss the possibility of Pac-12 expansion. Schlabach broke down the situation going on right now with Big 12 teams looking at a move to the Pac-12 or possibly elsewhere. “Larry Scott, the Pac-12 commissioner, has got to convince these other Pac-12 presidents that […]
  • ASU seeing ‘red’ after game at Illinois

    Coaches and players watch game film each week — some more than others — and some will watch the same film several times. “It’s until I feel I got out of the tape what I need,” ASU quarterback Brock Osweiler explained Monday. He watched the film from Saturday’s loss in Illinois once. Then he watched […]
  • Report: Pac-16 with Texas getting closer

    The Pac-12 may already be growing. According to ESPN’s Pac-12 Blog, a Texas newspaper said talks are heating up between four schools, including Texas, and Pac-12 officials. One of the biggest deal breakers for Texas, the newly-created Longhorn Network, seems to have been addressed. The new report said that Texas will be allowed to keep […]
  • Pac-12 teams should pay Illinois defense

    Pay up, Pac-12. When Arizona State lost to unranked Illinois on Saturday night in Champaign, they did more than blow a game they should have won. They created video gold out of the Fighting Illini’s game film. ASU’s offensive line allowed quarterback Brock Osweiler to be sacked six — count ’em, six — times on […]
  • Sun Devils must win to keep fans feeling good

    The Arizona State Sun Devils are 2-0, coming off a win over a ranked Missouri team. Players, coaches and fans are feeling pretty good — as they should — but all the fun times would quickly end with a loss Saturday to Illinois. “All the good you did in beating Missouri, I think goes out […]
  • Sun Devils looking to aviod hangover in Illinois

    After a thrilling overtime win against Missouri Friday the Arizona State Sun Devils must now prepare for their first road game. The win put the Sun Devils in the top 25, but the team has no time to linger on the victory since it must travel to Champaign, IL to play the Illinois Fighting Illini. […]
  • ASU’s Brock Osweiler ‘really got to be locked in’ when on road

    Brock Osweiler doesn’t have a ton of experience, but the experience he does have should help him this week when he leads Arizona State into Champaign, Illinois for the Sun Devils’ first road game of the season. “Fortunately for myself, I’ve started a game at Autzen Stadium. I’ve started a game down in Tucson. Two […]
  • Aaron Pflugrad is ASU’s ‘playmaker’

    It wasn’t a major move — maybe a few feet, but it has produced major results, so far. Through two games, Aaron Pflugrad leads all ASU receivers in catches (11), yards receiving (230) and touchdowns (4), results head coach Dennis Erickson was hoping for when he decided in the spring to move the senior from […]
  • Erickson knows Sun Devils must improve

    The record may be perfect, but Arizona State is far from a perfect football team. Dennis Erickson, during his weekly Monday press conference, said they were “fortunate” to beat Missouri last Friday night. Sure there were points left out on the field: from the missed field goal to the blocked extra point that Erickson said […]
  • Oklahoma and Oklahoma St. seem ready for the Pac

    Larry Scott may have said he is not interested in seeing the Pac-12 expand again, but that doesn’t mean schools aren’t lining up to join the conference. According to Orange Bloods, Oklahoma will apply for membership in the Pac-12 by the end of September, and Oklahoma State is expected to follow suit. Would the Big […]
  • Arizona State’s Pflugrad has huge game in win against Missouri

    When Arizona State quarterback Brock Osweiler needed to make a play he looked to wide receiver Aaron Pflugrad. At least that’s the way it seemed. Pflugrad caught eight of Osweiler’s 24 completions in the Sun Devils’ 37-30 overtime win against the Missouri Tigers. Saying those catches went for big gains would be putting it quite […]
  • Arizona State’s ‘Blackout’ brings out Fitzgerald, Nash

    Arizona State’s nationally televised Friday night matchup against Missouri had quite the star power — and we’re not talking about between the lines. Spotted at Sun Devil Stadium were Arizona Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald and Todd Heap, the latter a Sun Devil alum. Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash enjoyed a hug from Sparky on the […]
  • Expert: Black unis in heat will not slow ASU

    An Arizona State professor said the football team’s new black uniform will not impede the team in the heat when they take the field on Friday evening. According to ASU News, Michael Angilletta, who studies the way organisms adapt to their environment at the ASU School of Life Sciences, said that the amount of heat […]
  • ASU readies for Missouri, running QB

    It’s not like ASU has never faced a running quarterback before. But even knowing a quarterback’s strength is his legs more than his arm ahead of time still makes for a tough assignment. “It makes our job a little bit harder,” said Sun Devils senior linebacker Colin Parker, who was the team’s second leading tackler […]
  • Sun Devils outside for practice, inside the top 25

    It’s not unusual for ASU football to practice outside in September. It is unusual, however, for them to practice outdoors when temperatures push 110-degrees as they did late Tuesday afternoon. Remember, there is that practice bubble just a few feet away. “Not so much for the elements,” head coach Dennis Erickson explained for why they […]
  • ASU plans to keep facing difficult non-conference competition

    PHOENIX – The Arizona State Sun Devils are primed for their school’s biggest non-conference game in quite some time on Friday when they face the Missouri Tigers in front of a nationally televised audience. ASU Athletic Director Lisa Love plans to have ASU playing in these kind of high profile games in the future as […]
  • ASU coach Erickson: ‘I don’t think one game shapes anything’

    Arizona State’s game against No. 19 Missouri is big, of that there is little doubt. After all, it represents a chance for the Sun Devils to show the entire nation they are for real, helping to further validate the preseason expectations placed on them. Still, that doesn’t mean the result will shape the season in […]
  • Sun Devils ranked in USA Today top 25

    It didn’t take long for the Sun Devils to climb into the top 25. The USA Today Coaches Poll was released Tuesday and it has ASU ranked 23rd in the country following the team’s 48-14 home win over UC Davis. Friday’s opponent, Missouri, is just ahead at No. 19, making the matchup all the more […]
