  • ASU will start with the ball on its own 25.

  • ASU wins the toss, elects to defer to the second half. They will play defense first.


  • Defensive backs Ro Torrence, Keon Markham and Kejuan Markham are all in street clothes on the sideline. They were listed as game-time decisions, but will not play tonight. Jordan Clark will play. Omarr Norman-Lott joins them as out. Zeek Freeman is also out. Ed Woods was previously ruled out earlier in the week.
