Week 2 college football sees the Rebels and Sun Devils meeting at Sun Devil Stadium.
Opening statements? Hmm Hmm, there is only one thing to say to start this preview and that is to say that UNLV is in hella-trouble. We knew this was coming when the line setters slapped an Over 1.5 win team total on the Rebels to start the season.
Well, an opening day loss to BIG SKY Conference Eastern Washington pretty much sums up what we might expect to see in this grand tilt. Sun Devils are favored big and they should be after that performance by the Rebels last weekend.
The Sun Devils took a 41 – 14 win over Southern Utah to open their 2021 campaign and we all expect a simple 2 – 0 record to come after this one is over. Arizona State is surely playing a hefty schedule <<< Sarcasm to the nth degree!
The Sun Devils are favored by 34 points in this MWC vs Pac 12 matchup.
Stinky Poo Poo! Eastern Washington, man. Does that deserve a ‘Come on, man?”
Actually, the Eagles were favored over UNLV on September 2 so was that loss so shocking? Not to me and I find it hysterical that the Rebels still even have a football team at all. The Rebels are now 0 – 7 under Marcus Arroyo after an 0 – 6 2020 and the week 1 loss to EW.
Wait, who? Who the hell is Marcus Arroyo and how the hell did he get named the head coach of any FBS program? All those years with a sh!t San Jose team and a few years at Oregon as an assistant was enough to bring him in on as the man in charge?
Nope, not buying a damn ounce of any of that and we see why that move makes no sense at all. It is not like they were in any of their games in 2020 as they just got manhandled all 6 times they took the field. Now, an opening day loss to a Big Sky outfit really has me questioning his hiring completely!
Doug Brumfield got the opening day start and my god was he a mess vs EW! He went 5 for 12 with a pick and totaled 117 passing yards and then the ankle injury happened. He came out of the game but is expected back on the field this weekend.
Is that good or bad? The Dude is obviously not ready for college football and if he goes we are BANGING the Sun Devils hard!
Even his backup, Justin Rogers, looked like he was afraid to throw a football in the 35 – 33 OT loss. Rogers went 7 for 11 on the day but he only put up 23 passing yards and never looked downfield at all. Screen pass after screen pass and yet another 3 yard out does nothing to actually gain ground and it was ugly!
Charles Williams was basically the only bright spot in the loss as he carried the ball 27 times and picked up 172 yards for 2 scores.
Oh wait, Daniel Gutierrez went 4 for 4 with his field-goal attempts in the game so that is worth highlighting too. The kicker, baby!
Arizona State Sun Devils
Well, when you are favored by 34 points against a garbage UNLV team there is only one concern for us bettors… Will they just go out and pound the poor Rebs who are in such disarray for the last 2 years now?
They damn well better because if this is not a practice session with a little bit of meaning behind it, there is nothing else to say. They know they are expected to win big, we know it, UNLV knows it, and there isn’t much more to say about that line.
The Devs looked all right in their season-opening game against Southern Utah, but it is Southern Utah for God’s sake. Herm Edwards scheduling Southern Utah and ULNV back-to-back to start the 2021 campaign makes no damn sense. Not only is the team under scrutiny for breaking all kinds of bylaws last year, but coaches are being questioned all around campus and it makes things uncomfortable.
The NCAA has the investigation ongoing and that might take some time to sort out. Obviously, we have already seen 3 assistant coaches be dismissed and there will be more news to come.
Let’s worry about football for now though.
This defense will be the strong point of the Devs all season, at least it should be from all they got back this season. A convincing win over Southern Utah and UNLV is going to shock no one so yay for the approaching 2 – 0 Sun Devils!
For a team that put up 41 points last weekend, the stats are all just terrible. Starting QB Jayden Daniels came out of the game and he is listed as probable to go on Saturday. It won’t matter much because the only plan Arizona State has to run the ball, run the ball, and run the ball some more. I could go in and help pick up a win against UNLV when your ground game is all you are playing with.
All 6 of the TDs scored by the Devs last week came on the ground and Rachaad White led the way with a whole 58 yards and 2 scores on only 7 rushes. Expect more of the same this weekend because the Sun Devils don’t have a QB worth his weight in salt!

These lines stink and 53.5 is so damn low but we have to go there for this play.
When it is 35 – 0 halftime and we just need 17 points in the entire second-half to cash us out? We should be able to sneak it in.
