Why Arizona Will Win

The Oregon game might have been an aberration.

Arizona State was terrific in its 31-28 shocker over the Ducks. The downfield passing game was on, the defense held firm for three quarters, and it looked like the team that got off to a 3-0 start – at least defensively.

That, though, came after a four-game losing streak when the defense struggled to show up.

The Sun Devil secondary can be ripped up – Justin Herbert woke up late to make last week very, very interesting – and moving the chains on a consistent basis has been a struggle all year.

But Arizona isn’t exactly sharp.

What’s going right with this team? Blow off the losses to Oregon and Utah – they’re doing just fine. The Wildcat offense was able to roll against Oregon State and Stanford – coming up with over 1,000 yards in the two games – and getting enough passing production to be dangerous if ASU isn’t focused early on.

This is Arizona’s bowl game. This might be a rivalry showdown, but that Oregon win might have been ASU’s big moment.

Why Arizona State Will Win

The change in coordinators hasn’t mattered – the Arizona defense went from miserable to a whole new level of dreadful.

Again, playing Oregon and Utah will do that, but Oregon State rolled for 572 yards a few weeks ago against a Wildcat D that’s allowed close to 1,500 yards over the last three games. This isn’t the worst defense in college football, but it’s making a run for the honor.

The pass defense is the biggest issue, and that’s where Jayden Daniels comes in.

The true freshman outplayed Justin Herbert last week, throwing for 408 yards and three scores with icy-cold nerves in the biggest moments. He has only thrown two picks on the season, is averaging over nine yards per throw, and now he gets to take target practice against the secondary that can’t slow anything down.

What’s Going To Happen

The rivalry aspect will be a factor for a while as Arizona pulls out all of the stops.

And then the Arizona defense will play to form.

The Wildcat passing attack will show up and make this a blast, but the secondary won’t hold up its end of the bargain. Daniels won’t be under any pressure, he’ll connect on big play after big play, and Herm Edwards will have his second win in the rivalry over Kevin Sumlin.
