Do the Arizona State Sun Devils have what it takes to compete in the Pac-12 South with the USC Trojans?
Looking ahead, how confident a contender do you see yourselves being in the Pac-12 South? Do you think you can beat the best the best of the division?
Brad Denny, House of Sparky: Well, this question seems to be one way of saying "Can ASU beat USC in two weeks?" Right now, that's what I think it will come down to. With ASU and USC currently tied with one conference loss, I think each will drop at least one other game outside of that match-up (ASU to Oregon State, USC to Oregon), which means that the winner of November 10th's game very well will take the division. While it was clear ASU can't compete with Oregon (at least in 2012), I think they match-up better against the Trojans, but still should be underdogs. But hey, it's possible.
