If they stomp Colorado, they will creep into the top 25. They already have 39 votes. Now, the Oregon thing could go either way. On one hand, Oregon will be rested because they have a bye this weekend. The other side is that ASU will be in the trenches, doing their thing and @Oregon will be a continuation of that. It's a sold out game with the blackout, so if Oregon thinks its going to be easy they are going to get bitten. It's also the first chance at a signature win for the new coaching staff, so I imagine this years team will be amped up and ready. No more Dennis Erickson flatness. Washington State, of all teams, played the Ducks tough. It was 23-19 going into the half.

ASU controls their own destiny at this point. That's great considering this is a brand new staff with a fairly depleted roster.
