This game comes down to two big things. Can the Sun Devil defense stop Matt Barkley, and can Steven Threet keep the ball in ASU's hands?
If both of these things are accomplished, the Sun Devils have a real chance of winning this game against the Trojans in Los Angeles. If not, we're looking at a repeat of the past ten seasons, and another short season for ASU.
Stick around here and talk about the game - I'm cautiously optimistic about this one.
