Neither the Arizona State Sun Devils nor Arizona Wildcats had the kind of seasons they were expecting or hoping to have. Yet, for all that went wrong, each managed to reach bowl eligibility. For the Sun Devils it is the fifth straight year, and for the Wildcats it is the fourth straight.
No one is quite sure where either school will be for postseason play, but here are several national publications’ bowl projections for the Sun Devils (6-6, 4-5 in Pac-12) and the Wildcats (6-6, 3-6).
