The Arizona State Sun Devils have had the Buffaloes number since Colorado joined the conference back in 2011. The Sun Devils have won 6 of the 7 meetings between the two in Pac 12 play, and Herm Edwards hopes to see that success carry over.
Many wondered why Herm Edwards would take on an assignment like this after being away from coaching for 10 years. Of course, Herm had been an analyst with ESPN for the last handful of years, but Sun Devil AD Ray Anderson was convinced that the hiring would be a good one. So far.. so good!
The Colorado Buffaloes got off to a 3 – 0 start last season and failed to earn a bowl bid. This year, the team has reeled off 4 straight wins to open the 2018 campaign, as they welcome Arizona State to Folsom Field on Saturday. Now that they’re off to a 4 – 0 start, the expectations grow with every outing.
Arizona State Sun Devils
Both of Arizona State’s losses have been by 7 points, and losses to Washington and San Diego State is not exactly embarrassing. Those are two quality squads to come up short against, but one possession could have swung the momentum in their favor in either road loss.
Eno Benjamin was a huge part of Arizona State’s win last weekend over Oregon State. The Wylie Texas native gobbled up 312 rushing yards for three scores in the win, and is now a big part of the passing game as well. Benjamin caught three balls and scored another TD in the passing game, giving him 4 overall scores in the 52 – 24 shellacking.
Should the Buffaloes fail to earn their way to a bowl game this season, Colorado Head Coach Mike MacIntyre could surely be on the hot seat. This is year 5 for MacIntyre with the program, and we all know that the leash is short when it comes to keeping your job in the Pac 12.
Virginia Tech graduate transfer Travon McMillian has gone over 1oo yards rushing in three of the four outings for Colorado this season.
The Buffs are ranked 21st in the nation in yards per game, averaging 489.8 per contest.
Colorado is favored by -2.5 over Arizona State this weekend, although it appears it could reach a straight 3 by game time.
Considering that the home team is 5 – 0 ATS in the last five meetings and the favorite is 8 – 1 their 9 meetings overall, the line setters are naturally pointing to Colorado in this spot.
