The breakdown: Against then-nonranked Colorado, the Sun Devils became victims of the fiery Buffaloes who swallowed ASU, 40-16, then went onto win six games in a row and ranked as high as No. 8 when playing against then-No. 4 Washington in the Pac-12 championship game.
The magic number from Colorado’s monstrous win over ASU last season was 219. That’s how many rushing yards Phillip Lindsay had in that win, scoring three touchdowns. The Sun Devils have let up 216, 301 and 216 rushing yards to San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny, Stanford’s Bryce Love and USC’s Ronald Jones, respectively. A common theme in each of those games are losses, being three of ASU’s four.
The Sun Devils are 7-1 all-time against Colorado and 4-0 at home. Last year’s loss is the Sun Devils’ lone loss to the Buffaloes since the series began in 2006.
