No. 23 Arizona State’s fourth game of the season, a visit to 10th-ranked Washington, will be televised by ESPN starting with a 7:30 p.m. kickoff on Sept. 22, the school announced Monday.

ASU’s 16-13 victory on Saturday over then-No.15 Michigan State likely made the decision an easy one for the network, as that game was ESPN’s highest-rated college football late window game since November of 2016. It averaged a 1.6 rating.

The Sun Devils rallied from a 13-3 deficit in the second half, and a field goal by kicker Brandon Ruiz wrapped the upset win, moving ASU’s home record against Big Ten teams to a spotless 10-0.

The Huskies opened 2018 with a loss to then-No. 9 Auburn, 21-16, before beating North Dakota, 45-3, on Saturday.

Washington will visit Utah this week as ASU hits the road for the first time to take on San Diego State.

Arizona State, which this week entered the Associated Press top-25 for the first time since 2015, defeated the Huskies 13-7 at Sun Devil Stadium last season, handing the then-No. 5 team in the country one of two regular season losses of the year that played a part in keeping Washington out of the College Football Playoff.
