Pick through FOX Sports NFL analytics Jeff Schwartz:
The Territorial Cup has been one-sided as of late, with the Sun Devils winning five straight against their Wildcats rivals. That streak ends this season as the Wildcats are in a much better position than the Sun Devils.
Arizona State sacked Herm Edwards after the loss in Week 3 Eastern Michigan and has only won two since. The Sun Devils were hitting Washington at home 45-38 a Colorado 42-34, and since then they have lost three straight without covering the game. They overpowered the defenders, have a decent game, but are very bad defensively. In fact, they rank 69th in points per drive on offense and 128th on defense.
Their rival Wildcats have four wins, but have been much more competitive this season because of their offense. The Wildcats’ offense ranks 37th in points per drive and No. 1 in the nation in explosive play. Most of Arizona’s damage comes through the air, and Arizona State has not shown the ability to stop the opponent from doing anything.
The WildCats need to score because their defense is terrible, but I don’t think the Sun Devils can capitalize on that enough to stay within scoring range.
Give me cats.
