The Arizona State Sun Devils’ loss last week ended the chance to win the South title and play in the Pac12 championship game. I would imagine how hard it must have been to lose that game in the fashion they lost, and at your lowest, go on the road for the annual territorial cup game vs the University of Arizona had to be very difficult to do.
The 21st-ranked Colorado Buffaloes proved it belongs in the rankings with a 28-21 win over Arizona State on Saturday. At the same token the sun Devils are showing they can play with any team and this was a good game that just didn’t go their way.
The ASU Sun Devils opened the season with a 49-7 blowout of UTSA, and it was what everyone would have hoped it to be. Head Coach Herm Edwards made his debut on the sidelines after nine years away from coaching. A game like this should build confidence that the team he put together may be able to compete in the Pac 12 conference.
