Arizona State Sun Devils vs Utah Utes: Predictions, Odds and Roster Notes

How to Watch Arizona State Sun Devils vs Utah Utes

Where: Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, UT

When: Saturday, October 19th at 6 pm EST

How (TV): The Pac-12 Network

Arizona State Sun Devils (Away)

Head Coach: Herm Edwards {All-Time: 12-7 | ASU}

Regular Season Record: 5-1

The Arizona State Sun Devils are one win away from clinching bowl eligibility, however, they also will look to gain traction in the Pac-12 South Division as they visit Utah. With all of their Power Five games being decided within a touchdown, Herm Edwards should expect another tight battle against their third ranked opponent of the season. After facing Washington State’s air raid last week, the Sun Devils will have to adjust for a more ground heavy attack from Utah on Saturday.

The Sun Devils escaped Tempe with a 38-34 win that saw four lead changes. Freshman quarterback Jayden Daniels slung the ball around for 363 yards and three touchdowns, all of which went to his top target, Brandon Aiyuk. Aiyuk would finish the game with seven catches for 196 yards, most of which came on an 86 yard bomb from Daniels. Star running back Eno Benjamin chipped in with 137 yards on the ground — his 12th career 100-yard game — while Daniels ran in for a score to put ASU up for good late in the fourth quarter.

Although ASU coughed up 466 yards in the air to Washington State quarterback Anthony Gordon, their defense nonetheless managed to keep the cougars under their 43 point scoring average. Junior cornerback Jack Jones was a key contributor, batting down five passes while leading the team with 11 tackles.

Utah Utes (Home)

Head Coach: Kyle Whittingham {All-Time: 125-62 | UTAH}

Regular Season Record: 5-1

Unlike their upcoming opponent, the Utah Utes have made life easier for the fans by winning convincingly against Pac-12 competition. With exception to their lone loss to USC, the Utes have won all of their games by at least two touchdowns, including a 52-7 blowout last week over Pac-12 cellar dweller, Oregon State.

The Utes dominated the Beavers in every way, doubling Oregon State’s total offensive yardage. Running back Zack Moss ran for 121 of Utah’s 256 rushing yards while reaching the end zone twice. Quarterback Tyler Huntley was not asked to do much, attempting just 17 passes for 247 yards while dishing out touchdown passes to receiver Samson Nacua and tight end Brant Kuithe.

Utah’s defense did not put up flashy numbers by any means but still bottled up Oregon State nonetheless. The Utes limited starting quarterback Jake Luton to a 50% completion rate, while redshirt sophomore linebacker Devin Lloyd took one of Luton’s passes 64 yards for a pick-six.

Arizona State vs Utah All-Time Series

The Sun Devils have dominated Utah in their 30 total meetings, winning 22 of those games and 13 of the last 15 matchups. The Utes have not beaten ASU since going back-to-back in 2015-2016, with the earlier win coming when Utah was ranked fourth in the country. This will be the second time both teams will play each other while ranked in the AP Poll, with the first such game occurring in 2014.

Arizona State Roster Notes

Junior kicker Brandon Ruiz has elected to transfer and is no longer with the team.

Redshirt senior center Cade Cote is listed as questionable with a broken foot.

Utah Roster Notes

Junior receiver Britain Covey is out for the season with a knee injury and plans to use a redshirt to preserve his eligibility.

Head-to-Head: Brandon Aiyuk (ASU) vs Jaylon Johnson (UTAH)

Although Benjamin should be a focal point on offense for Arizona State, offensive coordinator Rob Likens will likely dial up several play calls to get the ball in Brandon Aiyuk’s hands. Utah’s top corner, Jaylon Johnson, will look to foil those plans and force the Sun Devils to be one dimensional.

Brandon Aiyuk

Wide Receiver | 6-1, 206lb | Robert McQueen HS | Reno, NV | Senior

After spending a year as the second fiddle to a first-round pick in N’Keal Harry, Brandon Aiyuk has gotten his chance to be the number one option in the passing game. Aiyuk has quickly adjusted as a JUCO transfer from Sierra College, putting together five 100 yard games since arriving in the desert. The Nevada native has demonstrated great athleticism in the open field whether it is as a return man or gaining yards after the catch as a receiver. Couple that with his reliable hands and he could start getting early-round attention from NFL scouts.

Jaylon Johnson

Cornerback | 6-0, 190lb | Central HS | Fresno, CA | Junior

Touted by some analysts as the best corner in the country, Jaylon Johnson has all the physical tools of a shutdown corner. A versatile defender who can line up on the outside of the slot, Johnson is not afraid of getting physical in press coverage and can operate in various zone coverages. His physicality sometimes leads to holding and pass interference penalties, however, he makes up for it with his ability to close in on passes and make plays. Given his experience defending top receivers like Harry and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in the past, we should expect Johnson to be shadowing Aiyuk all game long.
