Staff Picks: Arizona State
Scott Hood (5-1)
This game will provide a good gauge of the Beavers' mental and physical toughness. For the first time this season, OSU faces some adversity. How will they handle it? While Cody Vaz has been named the starting quarterback, the outcome of this game could be determined by the effectiveness of running back Storm Woods and the Beavers offensive line. Arizona State has been awful stopping the run this season. OSU's strategy is simple: run the ball, minimize turnovers, score in the red zone and contain the Sun Devils' short passing game. Reser Stadium should be rocking, and the Beavers will ride early momentum to another home win.
