First Look: Arizona State

Over the course of the week we'll have different previews featuring Arizona's game against Arizona State on Saturday in Tucson. To get things started, here's some basic information on Arizona's 12th opponent.

Head Coach: Dennis Erickson (15-9 as Arizona State head coach)
Team Record: 5-6
Nat'l Rank: NR
Last Time Out:

The Sun Devils scored four defensive touchdowns in a 34-9 win over UCLA last week. The Arizona State offense was a different matter however, mustering only 122 yards from scrimmage and only 21 yards on the ground.

That didn't matter though as the defense carried ASU to the victory, allowing 306 yards of total offense to the Bruins and limiting them to only three field goals in the scoring department.
