As a lifelong fan of the Pac-12, it’s nice to see the schools start to schedule non-conference games against bigger programs from the other Power 5 conferences. This only makes the conference stronger, win or lose. This week we get another big time matchup in this game pitting the Spartans of Michigan State against the Arizona State Sun Devils.
New Sun Devils coach Herm Edwards had his Arizona State squad in the win column week one when they beat UTSA by a lopsided score of 49-7, while Michigan State took care of Utah State in a rather close game, winning by a score of 38-31.
Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State won a tough game at home in week one against Utah State. They needed a score in the final two minutes of the game, and then hold up defensively, to get the W.
The game left coach Mark Dantonio saying, “I think our football team has got a dose of reality in all honesty.” Dantonio noted that the team needs to fix their self-induced mistakes to come away with a win in Tempe.
Non-conference games against lesser opponents doesn’t always go as planned in college football. But if Michigan State wants to keep their spot in the Top 25, they better figure out a way to come out of the Valley of the Sun with a victory. If not, their high hopes for a successful season might just go by the wayside.
Arizona State Sun Devils
Herm Edwards made his triumphant return to the side lines last week in Tempe, Arizona, leading his Sun Devils to a massive victory over Texas San Antonio.
The Sun Devils ran all over the Roadrunners, seemingly scoring every time the offense took the field. That was an outcome that should’ve been expected against the smaller school, but don’t for a minute think they will have a repeat performance this week. Even with the heat on their side.
This game will be the Sun Devils first real test under the new Edwards regime. Look for them to come out gunning, and try to control the pace of the game early.

This is a tough one to call actually. My mind tells me to take Michigan State, mainly because I don’t think ASU is where they want to be yet under Edwards, but it is a home game for them, and it’s tough to come into Tempe and win in the heat.
I’m not saying this game is a pick ’em, but it seems to be that close for me. Never the less, I’m going with Sparty in the desert.
