ASU Football Moves To 21st In Week 8 BCS Rankings

A week off did wonders for the Arizona State Sun Devils, who found themselves in the second edition of the BCS rankings on Sunday night. Previously unranked, ASU is now 21st overall in the BCS rankings, a product of a lot of agitation in the rankings this previous week.

ASU is now officially ahead of Illinois, a team they lost to earlier in the season. As for the rest of the Pac-12, Oregon and Stanford are the only two teams ranked ahead of the Devils in the BCS rankings.

The Sun Devils have a very favorable schedule from here on out, playing Colorado (1-7), UCLA (3-4), Washington State (3-4), Arizona (2-5) and California (4-3). Yes, you read that correctly -- ASU only plays one team with a winning record through the end of the season.

Anything outside of a 10-2 record at the end of this stretch would be an incredible disappointment. The Pac-12 Championship Game is a very reasonable goal at this juncture, with the highest aspiration being a Rose Bowl appearance.

At this point, nothing else will do. Brock Osweiler and the Sun Devils need to perform. Hopefully Omar Bolden gets back soon to help shore up the pass defense.
