A win would have put them in the Pac-12 Championship, but instead, they fell 42-35 to their in-state rivals.

Duke is coming off a big-time win against unranked Wake Forest. In its final regular season contest, the team took down the Demon Deacons 41-21.

Arizona State

Arizona State looked promising when it came to a Pac-12 title appearance most of the year. Through nine contests, the team had gone 8-1 defeating four top-25 opponents along the way.

Unfortunately, it stumbled late in the year on the road against unranked Oregon State and on the road against Arizona, which is why it finds itself in the Sun Bowl at this point in the process.

Offensively, this team has done some serious damage. The team is averaging 37 points per game, which is good enough for 19th in the country.

Although the rushing attack has been middle-of-the-road up to this point (170.2 yards per game, 58th in the country), the passing game is where this team has found its success.


It’s 29th in the country in terms of passing yards per game, racking up 276.3 yards per game in that particular category.


The obvious plan of attack for Duke is to stop the passing game of ASU. Luckily, that’s where the Blue Devils have excelled this season.

On the year, Duke has allowed its opponents to rack up just 204 yards per game through the air. That number is good enough for 35th in the country, and it’s significantly better than the 96th ranking this group has earned in terms of rush defense.

In total, the Blue Devils are giving up just 20.6 points per game. That number is good enough for 21st nationwide.

Offensively, this team is going up against a pass defense that has been vulnerable all year.

The team is giving up 261.8 yards in that category, which is only good enough for 106th in the country.

Hyundai Sun Bowl

The numbers ATS seem to favor Duke in many ways entering this contest. But ASU has one thing going for it at this point in the process.

The Sun Devils have been tested far more than the Blue Devils.
