Arizona State is coming off a huge home win over the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The UTSA Roadrunners will look to bounce back at home after suffering a tough loss to the Colorado State Rams.
After a successful week one showing against Alabama State, the UTSA Roadrunners couldn’t keep that momentum going against the Colorado State Rams.
After a successful game of running the ball against Alabama State, they found yards very tough to come by. Jalen Ramsey could only muster 39 yards on 13 carries and Jarveon Williams only averaged 1.25 yards per carry.
The passing game was a little better, but not much. Dalton Sturm completed 65% of his passes with two touchdowns, but he also threw an interception. Jared Johnson was able to complete five of seven throws.
Perhaps Johnson gets a little bit more run at quarterback against Arizona State.
Once again, UTSA lost the turnover battle. This is something the Roadrunners are known for and against a oportunistic defense like Arizona State’s look for them to give the ball to the Sun Devils in this one.
Arizona State Sun Devils
After an easy win against Northern Arizona on opening week, the Arizona State Sun Devils faced a stiff challenge at home against the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
This was a game between, on paper, two evenly matched teams from the Pac-12 and Big 12 and, for the most part, it was.
However, Arizona State’s defense was able to make a couple of stops and hold off the Red Raiders long enough to win 68-55.
Kalen Ballage was the player of the game setting a new Pac-12 record by scoring seven rushing touchdowns. An absolutely unbelievable game was he scored on over half of his carries.
Ballage only had 13 carries, but he made the most of them going for 137 yards and scoring the seven touchdowns.
Ballage had an impressive game, but don’t forget about the “real” starting halfback on this team. Demario Richard had over 100 yards himself and he was the workhorse back as he carried the ball 30 times.
After two games, Manny Wilkins has been a pleasant surprise for the Sun Devils.
He has gone well above the call of duty being efficient as a passer completing 75% of his passes and an extremely effective runner as he has run for six yards a pop.
The Sun Devils defense is still very vulnerable as they’ll give up their fair share of huge plays, but against a limited offense like UTSA they should keep the big plays and the points to a minimum.

Free Week 3 NCAA Football Prediction:
It’s a short week for both teams and there will be a bit of a let down for the Arizona State Sun Devils coming off a huge win at home, but I still like them enough to cover.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Arizona State -18
UTSA will be up for this game and they might get off to a hot start, but eventually class will tell the tale and I see Arizona State pulling away and covering this game.
