Arizona State football schedule – a breakdown

Returning a wealth of talent, the Arizona State Sun Devils enter the 2011 season with high expectations.

Quarterback Brock Osweiler will be entering his first year as the starter after showing promise when presented with opportunities in the past.

Defensively, the Sun Devils suffered setbacks when cornerback Omar Bolden was lost with an ACL injury and linebacker Brandon Magee went down with a ruptured achilles, but junior linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who is on the watch list for every major award, has vowed to be more of a leader.

The Sun Devils have not been to a bowl in three seasons but most expect that to change in 2011.
