The No. 18 ASU Sun Devils will play arguably their biggest game of the season this weekend when they take on the No. 9 Oregon Ducks. Though head coach Dennis Erickson acknowledges what his team is going up against, he also acknowledges that his team can make some noise in this game, courtesy of a press conference clip by AZ Central.

Erickson spoke highly of Oregon's offense, stating that, "I don't know if I've ever seen a team as fast offensively." He paid tribute to the fact that Oregon can put up 25 points in a hurry before a team even realizes what hit them and mentioned that he tries to replicate some of their hurry-up offense with the Sun Devils.

Erickson also stated just how far he thinks his team has come so far this year. Citing injuries as the main obstacle, Erickson said that, "The feeling of a football team is finally there, and that's the most important thing."

His football team will get a chance to prove itself in a big way when ASU battles Oregon. The game certainly won't be easy, but the Sun Devils are coming off of a big 35-14 road win against Utah and will look to carry that momentum into this game. The game will air on ESPN Saturday night at 7:15 PT.
