2019 Football Preview – Pac 12 – Sun Devils
Looking for 2019 Arizona State Sun Devils predictions? The Sun Devils had some success and some failure in the first year under Herm Edwards. This year the hope is that the team will have more ups than downs and it will lead to the team doing better than needing to have success late in the season just to get to a bowl game.

So what team will show up this fall for the Sun Devils?
2019 Arizona State Sun Devils Predictions: Team Strengths
Running Wild: The biggest strength on this team is pretty simple, it’s the running game and most specifically Eno Benjamin.
Last season he rushed 300 times for 1,642 yards and 16 touchdowns. He was also a threat out catching the ball rushing 35 times for 263 yards and two touchdowns.
Benjamin is a star but it also helps that the offensive line is really experienced, and has been opening up big holes for him.
This season I would expect it to be a run-first offense and for them to really pound the rock.
Strong Secondary: Just a few years ago the secondary looked to be the laughing stock of the Pac 12 but that isn’t the case anymore.
Cornerbacks Kobe Williams and Chase Lucas and safety Aashari Crosswell ar three of the best guys at their position, and on the defense that is going to be a major strength for the team.
The rest of the defense has questions which makes it even more important that the secondary is really good this year.
2019 Arizona State Sun Devils Predictions: Team Weaknesses
Inexperienced quarterback: It was a quarterback battle all spring and summer and the team has finally made a decision, Jayden Daniels.
This is the first time ever that a true freshman has started in Sun Devils history. This could very well end up being a good decision but there are going to be some growing pains early on and it could cost a game or two.
The good news is the rest of the offense is experienced and that should help the young Daniels feel comfortable.
Lack of Depth: Across the board, there is a lack of depth for the Sun Devils but especially on the offensive side.
The wide receiver position is very thin and at running back after Benjamin there really isn’t much to lean on and if injuries happen, there are going to be issues.
Arizona State Sun Devils Prediction: 5-7
The Sun Devils gave themselves a couple of gifts to start the season and that is a good thing because I think wins are going to be hard to come by after the first two games.
I am going to be nice and give them five wins but I wouldn’t be surprised if this team wins only three or four games and there start to be some real questions about Edwards role as the coach of the Sun Devils.
