Kyle Whittingham calls Sun Devils a ‘dangerous injured animal’ after coaching change

Utah plays Arizona State football on Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz., where Pac-12 play begins for the Sun Devils and the No. 13 Utes. Utah Head Coach Kyle Whittingham isn’t sleeping on ASU, however, as he undergoes his coaching change. Arizona State and Herm Edwards split last Sunday after the Sun Devils fell to 0-2 with a 30-21 loss to Eastern Michigan, but Whittingham doesn’t want the Utes (2-1) to underestimate ASU. In fact, Whittingham compared Arizona State to a “dangerous injured animal” entering the Week 4 game.

After an upset 29-26 loss to Florida to open the 2022 season, Utah responded, including a 35-7 win over San Diego State to right the ship for Week 3. back on track on September 10 with a 73-7 rout of FCS Southern Utah.

For the Sun Devils, the former Florida quarterback and ASU starter Emory Jones is a player whom Whittingham specifically singled out.
