The Arizona State Sun Devils travel to play the Washington State Cougars in a Pac-12 battle this weekend.
The Washington State Cougars are coming off of a close loss against Stanford where they missed a game winning field goal to end the game. The Washington State offense is averaging 35.4 points per game with 498.2 yards per game. Quarterback Luke Falk leads the WASU offense with 3239 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions. Gerard Wicks is the leading rusher for Washington State with 400 yards and 2 touchdowns. Gabe Marks is the leading receiver for Washington State with 800 yards and 11 touchdowns. The Washington State defense has given up 30.9 points per game with 412 yards per game. Washington State’s defense has 20 sacks, 7 fumble recoveries, and 7 interceptions. Washington State finds success through their passing game, as they have one of the best passing attacks in the nation. WASU will look to pass early and often against a questionable Arizona State defense.
The Arizona State Sun Devils are coming off of an overtime loss to Oregon last weekend. The Arizona State offense is averaging 33.6 points per game with 460 yards per game. Quarterback Mike Bercovici leads the ASU offense with 2244 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions. Demario Richard is the lead back for ASU with 664 yards and 5 touchdowns. Devin Lucien is the leading receiver for ASU with 415 yards and 2 touchdowns. Tim White also catches passes for ASU with 400 yards and 6 touchdowns. Arizona State’s defense has given up 31.5 points per game with 395.9 yards per game. The Arizona State defense has 29 sacks, 3 fumble recoveries, and 7 interceptions. Arizona State is coming off of 2 straight losses and will be looking to bounce back in the win column. ASU will have their hands full with the passing attack of Washington State and will need their secondary to rise to the challenge.
Arizona State is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Arizona State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games. The over is 5-2 in Arizona State’s last 7 conference games. Washington State is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. Washington State is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games. The under is 5-1 in Washington State’s last 6 home games. The home team is 5-1 ATS in these two teams last 6 meetings.
This will be an interesting matchup between two teams that are right in the middle of the Pac-12 race. Washington State will try to establish their passing attack while Arizona State uses a more balanced attack. Both offenses are good and this will likely be a high scoring game. In a high scoring game, I trust Washington State’s offense more than Arizona State’s. I’ll take Washington State in this one.
