Autzen Zoo Pac-12 Schedule Breakdown: Arizona State Looks To Run To Title


More from Autzen Zoo

Senior Quarterback Mike Bercovici returns to lead the Sundevils in 2015. He has a new weapon

in Wide Receiver Tim White

along with Senior Wideout Devin Lucein and Running Back De’Chavon Hayes returning. Arizona State is also showing off some leg power with the running game with

Sophomores DeMario Richard and Kalen Ballage who put on a show

in front of six-thousand on hand at a Fall Camp Practice last week.  Both rushed for a combined one-hundred yards and two touchdowns in a ‘scrimmage’.

Schedule: Texas A&M in Houston (9/5), Cal Poly (9/12), New Mexico (9/19), USC (9/26), @UCLA (10/3), Colorado (10/10), @Utah (10/17), Oregon (10/29), @Washington State (11/7), Washington (11/14), Arizona (11/21), @California (11/28)

Non-Conference Thoughts: Playing A&M in Houston will be a road game for ASU given the proximity to College Station. Cal Poly and New Mexico should each be easy wins, however I do expect the Lobos to be more competitive than the Mustangs.

Conference Schedule: They’ll open with four straight divisional games before an off week that’ll be followed by hosting Oregon right in the middle. They close with two home and road games against teams they should be able to defeat.

Outlook: 10-2, yes I think this could be a good season for Todd Graham’s team this season and the schedule looks manageable. If they knock off those Aggies to open look out, I still don’t think they beat Oregon and will lose to one LA school.

The Oregon Ducks face Arizona State on the road this season on a Thursday night(October 29th, 7:30pm PT) on ESPN. Mark Helfrich and company begin the regular season on Saturday, September 5th hosting Eastern Washington at Autzen Stadium(5pm Pacific Time, Pac-12 Networks)
