Kickoff between WSU and ASU is minutes away, and the central question is simple: Can the Cougars overcome the curse of the desert? They haven’t won in Tempe since 2001.
Circumstances would seem to indicate the Cougs have a good chance of being successful tonight. ASU is missing two starters on its offensive line against a defensive line that has been dominant for the last four games. The center will be making his first start. The Cougars love to shift and stunt. Additionally, ASU’s once-mobile quarterback is hobbled and not known for his ability to pick a defense apart from the pocket.
Meanwhile, outside of some turnovers, the ASU defense hasn’t really been able to do much to stop the WSU offense the last two seasons with Luke Falk at the helm. Oh, and they’re missing one of their starting safeties.
Does Todd Graham have some new tricks up his sleeve tonight? WILL HE STEAL MORE SIGNS THAN USUAL??
Tune in to find out. In the meantime, discuss the game as it unfolds in the comments below.
