        ASU is not a juggernaut, but they are a very good team this year. I’d argue they are more balanced than injury-laden Oregon at this point. They lost to TDS, but mostly because they shot themselves in the foot. Jayden Daniels is a true dual-threat, and their second-highest rusher with ~400 yards this year. They have a very balanced attack, averaging ~220 yards on the ground and roughly the same through air. They have 3 very good RBs, and 6 receivers with between 135 and 250 receiving yards this year. Their secondary is experienced with a total of ~145 games between them. They have a mid-season all-American LB, an experienced OL and DL, and so on.. How do we surmount all of this? ASU is not more talented than USC, but they’re well-coached and won’t fold. I’m feeling really nervous about this one tbh. Anybody want to talk me off the ledge?

        Utah is probably even more motivated and they’re just as talented as ASU.  Also, ASU has had problems this year in hostile environments.

        My .02…don’t let 18 year olds playing a game put you on a ledge. Whatever is meant to happen will happen. Just enjoy the ride. 🙂

          Metaphorically speaking of course, but point taken.

          I attend the games, enjoying time sitting with my elderly father who may not be around much longer.  I try to have a happy time no matter what the outcome.  If we win, it is just a bonus.  (And I’ll yell my head off trying to support the team and motivate them to victory).

        Echoing @mauchdawgute
        Just like USC place little to no expectations on this team and enjoy a positive outcome if it happens.

          True, football will be secondary this year. The smiles on their faces last week melted my heart. I want the ride the continue.

        If it helps – ASU fans themselves have admitted we have the top defense in the PAC, based on them playing 2 cupcakes and us 1 cupcake plus SDSU. I’m just hoping to see our guys smiling and having fun again.

        My feelings are it’d be great to win. I will be there cheering them on. If we lose, the sun will come up the next day. If we win it’ll still come up but just feel sweeter. This is a super young team. I think next year is the year but gonna love everything this year win or lose.

        They are talented, experienced, but not mentally strong. If we come out play our game, knock Daniels done a few times and contain the run. They will fold. Daniels cannot throw consistently and they’re recovers aren’t great. Contain, not stop but contain the run and we’re in business.

        Wasn’t Herm supposed to be fired by now?
