ASU vs. UCLA Preview
Later today the undefeated Arizona State Sun Devils host the 3-0 Bruins of UCLA. This is a huge game for both teams because the last few years the winner of this game went on the win the Pac 12 South and played for a conference title. This game is being called a "blackout", which means fans will be wearing black in support of the hometown sun Devils.
ASU will be without starting quarterback Taylor Kelly due to a foot injury. Fans are hoping that Mike Bercovici can lead the Sun Devils to victory in a backup role just like Drew Stanton has done for the Arizona Cardinals. In fact Bercovici even received a text from Stanton giving his support and wishing him well. The Sun Devils will rely heavily on its talented tailback D.J. Foster. If Foster can have the big game he is capable of ASU will have no problem picking up this victory. Defensively they will have their hands full of quarterback Brett Hundley is on the field. The Bruin's have a very talented team that many feel can make a run at the Pac 12 title, but they haven't played that way all year long. They have struggled in each of their first 3 games. If they struggle early tonight in Tempe look for the Sun Devil's to take advantage and come away with the victory.
Prediction: ASU 21, UCLA 20
