On the latest episode of State of the Sun Devils, an Arizona Sports podcast, Jesse Morrison, Jeremy Schnell and Jake Anderson break down what can be gauged about the Arizona State football team in its upcoming game against Eastern Michigan Eagles on Saturday.

The trio discusses what everyone would like to see from quarterback Emory Jones and the rest of the ASU offense against EMU’s defense, which early on is ranked No. 121 in the country in total defense.

Conversely, Eastern Michigan (1-1) sports the No. 84 ranked offense as it comes to Frank Kush Field in Tempe on the heels of a 49-21 road loss to the Louisiana Rajun’ Cajuns in a Week 2 contest.

Morrison, Schnell and Anderson also talk about Arizona State’s costly penalties in inopportune times against Oklahoma State, which ASU head coach Herm Edwards harped on during the team’s film session this week.

In other Sun Devil sports news, ASU’s David Puig turned pro and is joining LIV Golf, and the men’s basketball team landed class of 2023 four-star recruit Akil Watson.

Arizona State hosts Eastern Michigan at Sun Devil Stadium on Saturday in a Week 3 Pac-12 matchup. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. MST on ESPN 620 AM and 98.7 FM HD-2.
