Arizona State (5-3) vs. Oregon (2-5) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Oct. 29
Game Time: 5:00 pm
Venue: Autzen Stadium, Eugene, OR
Alright, Oregon. Enough is enough. It’s been a miserable season so far, the coach is on the hottest of hot seats, the defense is a nightmare, and it’s been a 2-5 start with a five-game losing streak.
But there are plenty of positives, coming way-too-close to pulling off a win over California, with QB Justin Herbert coming up with a brilliant six-score day before throwing the game-sealing pick in double-overtime.
The Ducks lost to Nebraska and Colorado by three points each, but blowouts to Washington State and Washington were galling.
The offense still works just enough to stay alive, and now it’s time to take the first step back to potential respectability against a struggling Arizona State team.
With three of the next four games on the road, the Ducks can’t afford another misfire.
With injured quarterbacks and no pass defense whatsoever, ASU has sputtered after a hot start, losing three of the last four games with the lone positive a win over UCLA. But the defense hasn’t been even close for most of the season, giving up 40 points or more four times in the last seven games and allowed 37 last week against Washington State.
Playing Texas Tech, Cal, and Washington State will screw up everyone’s pass defense stats, but ASU is getting torched by everyone. Can the offense keep up the pace?
Manny Wilkins is having a great season when he can stay healthy, but if he can’t go, it’ll be up to Dillon Sterling-Cole after completing just 7-of-16 passes for 86 yards against Wazzu. No matter who’s under center, ASU will have to get bombing.
The Sun Devils will get their yards and have their big moments against the porous Duck D, but Herbert and the passing game will get cranked up and rolling again as the team finally gets to exhale.
It’s the ultimate cliché, but yeah, Oregon needs to take it one game at a time. It starts here in a typical Pac-12 firefight.
