Missouri Vs. Arizona State: Football Game To Be Attended By Several NFL Scouts

According to ASU media guru Doug Tammaro, the Arizona State Sun Devils' upcoming game against the Missouri Tigers will be attended by "at least a dozen NFL teams/scouts." This news just adds another dimension to an already intriguing match-up for the Sun Devils.

The Sun Devils will host the Tigers this Friday, Sept. 9th in the school's first-ever blackout game. ASU can propel itself into the Associated Press Top 25 (which they did not make today following Thursday's 48-14 rout of UC-Davis) with a win over the No. 21 Tigers. Missouri provides the Sun Devils their first real test of the season, and the outcome of the game could go a long way in determining how much this Sun Devil squad can accomplish this year.

The news that at least a dozen scouts will attend the game only adds to the hype. The scouts will surely have their eyes on ASU's Vontaze Burfict, who figures to be a first-round draft pick and who could really improve his stock with a big performance on national television.

The scouts will also take note of any impact players that can alter the course of this game and bring their team a victory. Older Sun Devils and Tigers alike will get the opportunity to improve their draft prospects in this early part of the season with a big game. We'll have to wait until Friday to see who steps up.
