ASU Sun Devils at 19 in ESPN too-early Top 25
To say there are high expectations for the Arizona State Sun Devils in 2015 would be a bit of an understatement.
Todd Graham’s team has been one of the best in the Pac-12 for the last couple of seasons, and that is expected to be the case once again this year.
In ESPN NCAA football writer Mark Schlabach’s too-early Top 25 list, he has the Devils at 19.
It almost seems like an oxymoron, but well-traveled Todd Graham has brought stability to Arizona State. The Sun Devils won 10 games in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1970-73, and they’re bringing back nine starters on defense this coming season. Quarterback Mike Bercovici started three games last season, and tailback D.J. Foster is going to be utilized as a slot receiver to help him play in the NFL.
Arizona State finished last season ranked 12th in the AP Top 25. Ahead of them on Schlabach’s list are Oregon, USC, UCLA and Arizona, while Stanford is behind.
