How tough is the Sun Devil D? Cuz the way the Aggie O puts up points that game could get real ugly.

Making the Vegas bowl is the next big step forward that our program needs to take.


I'm a reasonable man, get off my case.

How about we beat Boise state and take their place in the fiesta bowl.

Arizona State is all about blitzting! They send extra guys every down to the point that it puts them at risk of not being able to stop the deep ball or the guy that breaks through the line. They should have a better record than they do, but the HC is stubborn about the blitzing. It worked out well for them last week against UCLA. I honestly don't know how we would do against them.

With losses to Washington and Utah, this just isn't going to happen at this point. Maybe we would still have a chance if Boise were undefeated, but they lost to BYU.

Toledo, Houston, Memphis, and Temple would all need to lose 2 games each (all undefeated right now) if not more from this point on.

Agreed. The AAC is really looking like the top G5 conference right now.

Here's how Sagarin currently ranks the conferences/divisions:

1. SEC-West: 84.09
2. Big 12: 80.52
3. Pac12-South: 80.13
4. ACC-Coastal: 77.51
5. SEC-East: 77.21
6. ACC-Atlantic: 76.91
7. Pac12-North: 76.90
8. Big10-West: 76.76
9. Independents: 75.04
10. Big10-East: 74.59
11. American-West: 68.23
12. American-East: 65.72
13. MWC-Mountain: 64.46
14. MAC-West: 62.80
15. MWC-West: 60.32
16. Missouri Valley: 59.84
17. MAC-East: 59.12
18. CUSA-East: 58.38
19. CUSA-West: 56.19
20. Sun Belt: 55.00

The MWC's poor showing in out of conference games hurts. Meanwhile Toledo, Houston, and Temple all beat P5 teams and elevated their conference rankings.

No, the Missouri Valley is FCS...now think about how Conference USA and the Sun Belt feel...

That said, the western division of the MWC is very close to being passed by the Missouri Valley...
