The Utah Utes will play the Arizona State Sun Devils in a PAC-12 Game on Saturday night at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.

The Utah Utes are 2-1 this season after they defeated San Diego State by a score of 35-7 in Week 3. Utah held SDSU to 173 total yards and forced two turnovers in the win. The Utah offense is averaging 44.7 points per game with 264 passing yards per game and 216.7 rushing yards per game. Cameron Rising has thrown for 694 yards, eight touchdowns, and one interception for the Utes this season. Tavion Thomas has rushed for 222 yards and four scores, while Brant Kuithe has caught 17 passes for 191 yards and three touchdowns for Utah. The Utah defense is giving up 14.3 points per game and 236.3 yards per game.

The Arizona State Sun Devils are 1-2 this season after they lost to Eastern Michigan by a score of 30-21 last week. Arizona State fired their coach, Herm Edwards, after this loss. Arizona State allowed EMU to gain 458 total yards in the game, with 305 of those yards coming on the ground. The ASU offense is averaging 26 points per game with 185.7 passing yards per game and 189.3 rushing yards per game. Emory Jones has thrown for 557 yards and two touchdowns for the Sun Devils this season. Xazavian Vallady has rushed for 361 yards and four touchdowns, while Elijhah Badger has caught 17 passes for 217 yards and one touchdown for Arizona State. The ASU defense is allowing 22.3 points per game and 347.7 yards per game.

Utah is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 17-7 ATS in their last 24 conference games. The over is 7-0 in Utah’s last 7 road games. Arizona State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 September games. The under is 5-0-1 in Arizona State’s last 6 games. Utah is 6-2 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

This has been a week full of distractions for Arizona State after their head coach got fired and reports came out about assistant coaches trying to sabotage the team. Utah is very good and their defense has played very well over the last two weeks. I don’t see how Arizona State can navigate this week and compete with Utah after they just lost to Eastern Michigan by nine points. I will take Utah to win in a blowout.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
