Tarleton State @ Arizona State
What to Know
The Arizona State Sun Devils and the Tarleton State Texans will face off at 7 p.m. ET November 7th at Desert Financial Arena to kick off their 2022 seasons. Last year was nothing to brag about for ASU (14-17), so the team is looking forward to a new start. Tarleton State struggled last season, too, ending up 14-17.
A couple last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: The Sun Devils ranked 38th worst with respect to points per game last year, where the squad accrued only 65.4 on average (bottom 89%). The Texans had an even harder time: they were 24th worst when it came to points per game last season, with the squad coming up with only 64.6 on average (bottom 93%). It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
ASU is the favorite in this one, with an expected 14.5-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
