Arizona State Sun Devils game notes
Arizona State quarterback Jaden Rashada will be sidelined until mid-November with a foot injury. He served as the team’s backup defender in the first part of the season. Sun Devils starting quarterback Drew Pine has missed the team’s last four games with a foot injury, but he is questionable for this week’s contest. If both Payne and Rashada are unable to play, Arizona State will leave the third-string quarterback Trenton Borge. Borge has thrown for 1,196 yards, 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions this season. He has also rushed for 57 yards and 2 touchdowns. Saturday will be Borge’s sixth game for the Sun Devils if he is pushed to start.
X backup wide receiver Andre Johnson is questionable for this weekend’s game with an undisclosed ailment. Johnson has 4 catches for 36 yards in three games this year for the Sun Devils.
Utah Utes game notes
Utah’s regular starting quarterback was Cameron Rising. He missed a few games early in the season while recovering from a torn ACL and was hoping to return at some point this season. He is currently out for the rest of the year. Utah has played both quarterbacks Bryson Barnes and Nate Johnson in his place, with Barnes scoring the first point in the team’s last 3 games. This season, Bryson Barnes has completed 67 of 118 passes for 769 yards, 4 touchdowns, 5 interceptions and a 44.2 QBR. Barnes is 3-1 when he completes at least 12 passes and 1-1 when he doesn’t. How he plays will likely determine whether Utah covers that number this weekend.

Arizona State vs Utah betting prediction
Utah was hosted by Oregon 35-6 last weekend. The Utes recorded just 241 yards of total offense and turned the ball over twice in the loss. They should have a better chance against Arizona State this week. But this could be a potential trap game for the Utes. Utah plays Washington next weekend, which could have huge Pac-12 Championship implications. It might be easy for Utah to overlook Arizona State this weekend.
Arizona State has been suspended in games for the past month. In their last four games, the Sun Devils have lost to Cal by 3, Colorado by 3, Washington by 8, and they beat Washington State by 11. Against an opponent who may turn his attention after this week. In a slightly opposite game, I’ll take the Sun Devils and the points in Utah on Saturday.
