www.collegefootballnews.com has their update today on Arizona State. The season will be a success if ... ASU finishes second in the Pac 10 and/or splits with LSU and USC. USC is a juggernaut and there are several tough road games making a conference title tough, but second is very attainable. It'll help the overall profile of the program to beat a team like LSU or USC along the way. A win in Death Valley would do wonders for the conference. The press has been saying this is ASU's year for three years now. That said, never under-estimate a passing team early in the season. We did last year... all they needed was a little confidence early in the game... and we obliged.
