The Sun Devils are a blow-hot, blow-cold kind of team. Although they are #25 in the BCS rankings as of Week 9, they have had a hard time staying in the rankings. For example, after winning against #20 Wisconsin, they jumped to #23 in Week 4. The following weekend, against #5 Stanford, they suffered a 28-42 loss than bundled them out of the Top 25. After winning against the USC Trojans, they re-entered the rankings, this time at #22. But a narrow 34-37 loss to unranked Notre Dame in Texas again led to their downfall.
Two games later, ranged against #20 Washington, the Sun Devils unleashed the full force of their offense, scattering 53 points to 24 for the Huskies. They would again be ranked in the Top 25, entering their date with Washington State.
Washington State had a very good start, opening the season with a narrow loss to Auburn, then racking up three straight wins, including an away win against USC. However, they were 1-3 the rest of the way; all of them were conference games. The Cougars are coming off a 38-62 humiliation at the hands of #2 Oregon in Eugene.
However, the Cougars have had a 2-1 home record, including a 42-0 rout of non-conference rival Idaho. Their Air Raid offense has resulted in some impressive scoring games; they have scored above 40 points thrice in 2013. Another thing going for the Cougars is that both of Arizona State's losses have come on the road, and they would be more than happy to jump on that opportunity.
