First, lets get some quotes from the home team’s blog, Building The Dam.
Oregon State 28, Arizona State 17: I actually have a really good feeling about this one. That all changes if James is out, but even then I see us winning a close one.
Arizona State has proven they can compete in the Pac-10. They’ve been playing like a focused group that has a chip on their shoulder, but they haven’t done enough to break through in their two marquee matchups with top-15 teams.
Now, lets go to House Of Sparky.
Essentially, these programs are exactly where you’d expect them to be: one tier below the big boys, but still full of potential. This could be a great game with two underrated squads facing off.
I personally believe that the Sun Devils can pull this game off. They are looking for real wins, not moral ones after all.
October 2: Road game against Oregon State (1-2, losses to Boise State and TCU)
The Beavers are probably the best 1-2 team in the Pac-10. They are a work in progress with a new quarterback, but they should not be ignored.
Prediction: ASU Wins
So there you have it, folks. Both blogs think their team will win – isn’t that the hallmark of the Pac-10 this season?
