The Washington Huskies and Arizona State Sun Devils will meet in an important Pac-12 matchup on Saturday, October 14, 2017. Find game time, TV channel and how to watch online information below.

The No. 5 Huskies (6-0, 3-0) come to Tempe having won 11 of their last 12 Pac-12 conference games. The Huskies beat the Sun Devils 44-18 in Seattle last season; however, the Sun Devils have won 9 of the last 10 games against Washington.

Arizona State (2-3, 1-1) struggled at the beginning of the season with losses to San Diego State and Texas Tech. However, the team has rebounded with a win over Oregon and a tightly contested road loss to Stanford.

While the game on the field is of paramount concern to both teams, the real headline here is that Washington coach Chris Petersen will be dealing with another late kickoff time and will play once again on ESPN. If you’re not caught up on the not-so-subtle war between Petersen and ESPN, this will explain everything you need to know.

Washington-Arizona State football keys to the game:

Continue dominating on defense

Washington has only allowed 24 points in 3 Pac-12 games so far this season. The defense is ranked No. 1 in the conference and No. 2 in the nation in total defense and is allowing only 228.8 yards per game.

Arizona State’s offense is ranked No. 10 in the Pac-12 in total offense. The Sun Devils have big time playmakers in RB Kalen Ballage and WR N’Keal Harry.

Washington should be able to dominate this battle and they’ve yet to meet a team that has enough fire power to even test their defense. However, Arizona State may have enough playmakers to test how good the Huskies’ defense really is.

Get Gaskin Going

While Jake Browning may get more attention because he’s the QB, RB Myles Gaskin is really the engine behind a Washington offense that is scoring an average of 43 points per game, tied for best in the Pac-12.

On the season, Gaskin has rushed for 559 yards and 8 TDs. Arizona State is allowing 190 yards per game on the ground and Stanford RB Bryce Love gained 301 rushing yards against them.

The Huskies need to establish the run early and get Gaskin the ball. If they do so, it should be an easy win in Tempe.

Get Out Healthy

The outlook for the Huskies right now is pretty good. The team is coming together at just the right time. However, injuries could derail another run at the College Football Playoff.

Arizona State figures to be Washington’s easiest opponent from here on out. The Huskies’ last five games are against UCLA, Oregon, Stanford, Utah and Washington State, albeit 4 of those games are at home.

Washington would be wise to try to jump on Arizona State early and the sit their starters if they have a chance to do so. The upcoming stretch for the Huskies may be too difficult to overcome if they’re not at full strength.
