10 a.m. at Sun Devil Stadium
Pac-12 Networks TV, ESPN Radio 710
Slow starts: Cougars have fallen behind by double digits in the first quarter of their past four games. That won’t be a recipe for success.
Mind games: WSU is out of the bowl picture and is playing mostly for pride. The Sun Devils come off the disappointment of having been knocked from the playoff picture by Oregon State. Which team brings it?
Down Brown: Cougars sophomore cornerback Daquawn Brown, their best at that spot, must sit out the first half after a targeting penalty against OSU. WSU mustn’t lose contact without him.
Luke lesson: So far, Falk has been a revelation in relief of injured Connor Halliday. The blitz-happy Sun Devils will provide another barometer of his maturation.
Prediction: Arizona State, 37-17.
