He wrote: “I’m going to stick with Arizona State. The Sun Devils had a tough game over the weekend, giving up 465 total yards and 30 first downs to a good Arizona State team. ‘Oklahoma. Arizona State came in just 2-13 on third down and committed 10 penalties for 95 yards, so they weren’t doing themselves a favor either. Started well against Louisiana but eventually finished with five turnovers and 10 penalties for 85 yards in a second-half slump.It’s not going to get any easier in this game, and I don’t think the Eagles will be able to cover.
