#7 Stanford and #9 Oregon are the top two teams in the Pac-12. #18 Arizona State has a chance to move up the polls if they can defeat the Ducks at Auzten Stadium at 7:30 PST this Saturday. The Sun Devils are #2 in total defense in the league and the Ducks are #1 in the Pac-12 in total offense. Arizona State leads the league in sacks (17) and interceptions (10).
When these two teams meet on Saturday there will be a lot of talent on the field. ASU MLB Vontaze Burfict (29 Tackles and 4 Sacks), QB Brock Osweiler (13 TD's) and WR Aaron Pflugrad (26 catches and 4 TD's) have had a big impact on the Sun Devil's 5-1 record. The Ducks QB Darron Thomas (17 Total TD's) and first year WR/HB De'Anthony Thomas (100 rushing yards, 286 receiving yards, 20.0 AVG on Kickoff Returns) could cause problems for the Arizona State defense. Both of these teams could meet again in the Pac-12 Championship Game.
