Sun Devils are back - finally


The Arizona State Sun Devils will be playing at Husky Stadium on Saturday (4 p.m.; FSN) for the first time since, well in this millennium.

The Devils last played in Seattle in 1999 under then-coach Bruce Snyder. But, thanks to the Pac-10's strange scheduling (see: Oregon at WSU), ASU hasn't been back. The Huskies have played the Sun Devils four times since then – all in Tempe.

Bob Condotta has some other notes, including an interesting one about play calling, on his blog. The play calling was also the lead of Don Ruiz's News Tribune story.

It looks like running back Kenny James will play Saturday, though his injured ankle did not allow him a full practice Tuesday.

If not, Shelton Sampson and Louis Rankin are ready to fill the void. And quarterback Carl Bonnell expects improvement on his end.

In other Husky news, Texas transfer Michael Houston, a running back redshirting this year, was arrested on suspicion of auto theft Sunday morning and has been suspended.
