The Sacramento State Hornets and Arizona State Sun Devils meet Friday in college football action at Sun Devil Stadium.
The Sacramento State Hornets look for a massive upset after beating Southern Oregon 77-19 in their season opener. The Sacramento State Hornets have lost four of their last five road games. Kevin Thomson completed 14 of 20 passes for 303 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions. Thomson and Jake Dunniway combined for 340 passing yards in the blowout victory. P. Williams and Elijah Dotson have combined for 212 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Isaiah Gable has two receptions. The Sacramento State Hornets ground game is averaging 340 yards per contest, and Thomson leads the way with 90 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Sacramento State is allowing 19 points and 351 yards per game. Allen Perryman leads the Sacramento State Hornets with six tackles, George Obinna has one sack and Marcus Hawkins has one interception.
The Arizona State Sun Devils look for a quick 2-0 start to the season after a 30-7 victory over Kent State. The Arizona State Sun Devils have won six of their last seven home games. Jayden Daniels is completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 284 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Daniels has three pass completions of 25 or more yards.

Defensively, Arizona State is allowing seven points and 200 yards per game. Darien Butler leads the Arizona State Sun Devils with seven tackles, Khaylan Kearse-Thomas has 1.5 sacks and Kobe Williams has two pass deflections.
The Sacramento State Hornets looked good last week, but we can't forget this team won just two games last year and isn't used to playing big boys from the FBS. The Arizona State Sun Devils have the talent to be a factor in the Pac-12 this season and should look to build on what was a comfortable opening week. I'll lay the chalk with the Sun Devils, but there are better options out there.
