Pitchfork Preview: Arizona State hopes for rare road win against Oregon

Oct 27, 2016, 3:42 PM | Updated: 4:47 pm

Arizona State travels to Eugene, Ore., for its Saturday afternoon matchup against the Oregon Ducks at Autzen Stadium.

The Sun Devils (5-3) are coming off a 37-32 loss to Washington State, where they turned to true freshman quarterback Dillon Sterling-Cole due to Manny Wilkins leaving the game with an injury.

The Ducks (2-5) are coming off a 52-49 double-overtime loss to Cal and have yet to win a conference game this season. In the last loss of their five-game losing streak, Oregon started true freshman QB Justin Herbert, who completed 22 of 40 passes for 258 yards and six touchdowns to one interception.

Oregon leads the all-time series against ASU 18-16, and the Devils go into Autzen Stadium seeking their first victory against the Ducks since 2004.

Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. and the game will air on Arizona Sports 98.7FM.
