Washington has been quite impressive this year on both sides of the ball. The Huskies defense hasn’t allowed more than 16 points in a game, while the offense has turned in at least 30 points in every outing. As for the Sun Devils, they’ve been doing okay on offense, with at least 20 points in every game, but defensively they haven’t been able to keep up. The Sun Devils have given up at least 30 points in every game this year. With Washington’s offensive capabilities, I can’t see this game as anything other than a rout. I’ll take the Huskies to cover.
