The Arizona State Sun Devils have no running game, they struggle to finish drives offensively, and their defensive effort is getting worse by the week. The Washington State Cougars have played their best ball this season at home, and their top-50 passing attack should give Arizona State fits. Washington State just put up a 50 ball against Stanford, and I see a similar effort against a Sun Devils defense that’s 102nd in total defense and 106th in scoring defense. Give me Washington State.
