Lets take a look at how the teams on Arizona State's schedule did in week 3. This is half a test of Strength of Schedule and half an opportunity to peer into the crystal ball.
|Northern Arizona (2-1)||W, 69-0 vs. Fort Lewis|
|Illinois (2-1)||W, 44-0 vs. Charleston Southern|
|Missouri (2-1)||W, 24-20 vs. Arizona St.|
|Utah (2-1)||W, 24-21 vs. BYU|
|California (1-2)||L, 35-28 @ Ohio St.|
|Colorado (0-3)||L, 69-14 @ Fresno St.|
|Oregon (3-0)||W, 63-14 vs. Tennessee Tech|
|UCLA (3-0)||W, 37-6 vs. Houston|
|Oregon St. (1-0)||Bye Week|
|USC (2-1)||L, 21-14 @ Stanford|
|Washington St. (2-1)||W, 35-27 @ UNLV|
|Arizona (3-0)||W, 56-0 vs. South Carolina St.|
Total opponent record: 23-11 (.676 winning percentage). As you can see, the road gets significantly harder after a Thursday night contest in Boulder, Colorado. After that, opponents have combined for a ridiculous 14-2 record.
