Sun Devil Source Report Podcast: ASU defense steps up vs. UTSA

Sep 5, 2018, 10:58 AM

Because of the opponent, maybe it was hard to judge what the Arizona State Sun Devils accomplished against University of Texas San Antonio. Let’s agree that there were few complaints after coach Herm Edwards’ first game.

Receiver N’Keal Harry played like the star he is, running back Eno Benjamin didn’t take long to show out in his first start and ASU took control early before pulling away for a 49-7 win on Saturday.

But leading into a hosting of Big Ten opponent and No. 15-ranked Michigan State, maybe the most surprising thing in the 2018 opener was Arizona State’s defense that recorded 10 sacks and 15 tackles for loss, not to mention three turnovers.

In this weeks’ Sun Devil Source Report Podcast, the Sun Devil Source staff looks back to review what good things it saw out of Edwards’ team against the Roadrunners and what it could mean looking ahead to the Spartans.

Each week, the ‘Sun Devil Source Report’ podcast brings you the latest news, information and analysis of Arizona State football. Publisher Chris Karpman, host Rob Werner and reporters Jack Harris and Max Madden of SunDevilSource.com bring you the most informative updates surrounding the Sun Devils.
