The Sun Devils finally take the field on Thursday night, playing the UC Davis Aggies in the season opener for both teams.

UC Davis has been a Division I school for five seasons now, and will join the Big Sky conference starting in 2012. Their head coach, Bob Biggs, has spent 18 seasons in Davis, racking up an impressive 136-71-1 record (.657) while spending his entire career as an Aggie.

The Aggies went 6-5 last season, and return their starting quarterback, Randy Wright. A sophomore, Wright threw for 2,432 yards, 17 touchdowns while limiting himself to only eight interceptions in his freshman campaign.

The last time the Sun Devils and the Aggies met on the gridiron was in 1940, when then-named Tempe Normal School defeated UC Davis by a score of 21-13.

ASU is not flying blind into this game, they know that you must give your best effort against every team or else you can be surprised. Under the leadership of Brock Osweiler, the hometown team should be able to take care of business early, especially if the running backs show up to the party.

What do you think the final score will be?
