Through 3 Quarters

Only one more quarter stands between the Arizona State Sun Devils and the victory they were favored to collect going into this night. It's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Southern Utah Thunderbirds as ASU lead 34-14. RB Rachaad White has led the way so far for the Sun Devils, as he has punched in two rushing touchdowns.

The Arizona State defense has been merciless to QB Justin Miller and currently has four sacks accrued. ASU might just be able to coast to victory if they can keep up that ball pressure

ASU has the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency. It would take nothing short of a miracle for Southern Utah to pull off a victory, but maybe they can at least keep ASU from covering the spread.
