The Arizona State Sun Devils will have an opportunity to rid the program of its recent road struggles when Todd Graham's team plays in Berkeley, Calif., this Saturday. House Of Sparky's Brad Denny points out that ASU's road record has been poor going back a couple seasons. The Sun Devils are 5-18 in their last 23 road contests.
Furthermore, the California Golden Bears have the Sun Devils' number in recent years, winning four in a row and eight of the last nine meetings between the two teams.
Put those two problems together, and ASU hasn't won at Cal since 1997.
The opportunity for the Sun Devils to shed the road woes and those against the Golden Bears shouldn't be overlooked, especially with a 1-0 conference mark that puts them at the lead of a Pac-12 South where even the best team, USC, already has a loss on its record. With a surprising victory against Washington State this past week, Colorado is the only other team that stands atop the South Division this early into the conference schedule.
