Daniels has great mobility and impressive decision-making in the pocket, with 22 passing touchdowns to just three interceptions over his first two seasons in the desert. He’ll also have plenty of help on the ground with running back Rachaad White returning after averaging 105 yards-per-game and 10 yards-per-carry in 2020. There’s plenty of depth behind White in the backfield, as well as four returning starters on the offensive line, so the Sun Devils will definitely be a problem for opponents in the trenches.
Arizona State returns nearly its entire two-deep on defense, including all 11 starters from last season. That continuity is unheard of these days, even if part of it is circumstantial due to the extra year of eligibility. And a great defense will go a long ways in the Pac-12, especially matched with an offense that has potential to create a lot of explosive plays.
With tons of depth and experience on both sides of the ball, a favorable college football schedule, and plenty of buzz for what is by far Edwards’ best Sun Devils team on paper, Arizona State continues to look like a strong bet to live up to the hype and win the Pac-12 at +450 odds.
