The pick: Why WSU will beat Arizona State

There are myriad reasons why Washington State has not been able to get a win in Tempe since 2001. The weather, for one, is about 30 degrees hotter than whatever is going on in Pullman. It’s a long trip, and every extra half hour spent cramped into a plane is hell on a lineman’s legs.

Mostly, though, Arizona State has just been a much better program than WSU over the last 15 years. Not any longer. The Cougars are hot, the Sun Devils have lost their sizzle and WSU’s Pac-12-leading run defense is the perfect counter to ASU’s capable backs. WSU wins and ends another of its dubious streaks.

The pick: WSU 31-27
