The Arizona Wildcats have been the better team this season, but I still don't believe they're as good as their record, and ASU does have more of a grittiness to them that could allow for an upset here. Also, let's not forget Arizona State beat Arizona on the road a couple of weeks ago. This is also a rivalry game where numbers can often be thrown out the window. Lot of points for my taste. Give me the buckets.
