Last time the Cougars played they forced three turnovers on Oregon and two on a QB who had yet to turn the ball over this season. The defense will have to keep this up and stop this Sun Devils offense from rolling and getting points on the board. The Sun Devils have only scored less than 53 three times this season, two of those games have been against ranked teams (Stanford, Wisconson), the other from Notre Dame.

The Cougar defense will have to get to quarterback Taylor Kelly who has gone 173-279 for 2236 yards with 18 touchdowns and 7 interceptions this season. Besides the 7 interceptions the Sun Devils have turned the ball over 3 more times in fumbles.

Keeping the Arizona State Offense quiet and out of a groove is one thing that the Cougars will have to do this week to get a win.
