No. 23 BYU targets another Pac-12 foe in No. 19 Arizona State

No. 19 Arizona State is preparing to play its first road game with fans in the stadium since 2019 when the Sun Devils travel to Provo, Utah, to face No. 23 BYU on Saturday.COVID-19 protocol kept fans out of the stadium for the Sun Devils’ 2020 season that included four games against Pac-12 opponents.Arizona State coach Herm Edwards knows of the challenge ahead facing the Cougars at LaVell Edwards Stadium in a higher altitude than Tempe, Ariz.The Sun Devils (2-0) have routed Southern Utah and UNLV at home in their first two games, outscoring those teams by a combined 78-24.”They’ve got a great fan base, and it’s going to be loud,” Edwards said of the BYU game. “You couldn’t go into a better venue when you think about college football. They have a great venue and they do a great job supporting their team.”This is kind of what you want to experience as a football team. Kind of figure out what you are.”What the Sun Devils have shown offensively to this point is a potent running game with versatile quarterback Jayden Daniels leading the team in rushing (165 yards on 19 carries) and passing (30 completions in 41 attempts for 307 yards with two touchdowns and an interception).Arizona State is coming off rushing for 290 yards in the 37-10 win over UNLV with Daniels gaining 125 yards on 13 carries, Rachaad White amassing 90 yards on 22 rushes and two touchdowns, and Daniyel Ngata gaining 64 yards on six rushes with a score.BYU (2-0) will look to win its first three games against Pac-12 opponents. The Independent power has already defeated Arizona 24-16 in Las Vegas and rival Utah 26-17 in Provo.The Cougars are also trying to start consecutive seasons 3-0 for the first time since the 1951 and 1952 seasons.
