Southern Utah Thunderbirds vs. Arizona State Sun Devils 8/31/2023 Picks, Tips and Game Forecast

Southern Utah Thunderbirds (0-0) vs. Arizona State Sun Devils (0-0)

Southern Utah Thunderbirds vs. Arizona State Sun Devils 8/31/2023 – Southern Utah just finished a 5-6 campaign with a 2-4 road record. The same coordinators are back with DeLane Fitzgerald for his second season as head coach. Kohner Cullimore, who led Southern Utah in tackles with 76, is back on defense. Payton Payne recorded 4.5 sacks, and Quadir Lockett-Smith had 6 pass deflections. The fact that Southern Utah has a ton of production returning on both sides of the ball is cause for optimism. There were some difficult seasons in Cedar City, and the Thunderbirds did not have a successful year since 2017. This season, that might change.

 

The Kenny Dillingham era at Arizona State, which just finished a season with three victories, started. At only 33 years old, the former Oregon offensive coordinator is making his head coaching debut. He also has rookie coordinators. Since 2015–16, Arizona State has not had consecutive losing seasons. Although Arizona State has a strong quarterback and dynamic receivers, some weaknesses remain. Running back help is needed for ASU, and the offensive line needs to become more dependable. The production from the defense also needs to end. Additionally, a very young head coach making his debut is present. Stay informed with free NCAAF picks today for upcoming games.

Thunderbirds QB Justin Miller vs Devils QB Justin Miller

Justin Miller is back as quarterback after completing 65.4 percent of his throws while tossing for 2,800 yards and 20 touchdowns. Braedon Wissler gained 444 yards on the ground and scored a touchdown, while Isaiah Wooden and Timothy Patrick, a receiving tandem, amassed 1,100 yards and seven scores between them.

 

Justin Miller, a transfer from Notre Dame who amassed 2,200 passing yards and 24 touchdowns on 287 pass attempts, will probably start at quarterback. ASU lost a lot of their running back production, including 1,000-yard rusher Xazavian Valladay, but their receiving trio of Eljhah Badger, Giovanni Sanders, and Jalin Conyers, who gained 1,700 yards and 13 touchdowns together, is back. Anthonie Cooper led the Sun Devils with 2.5 sacks, Chris Edmonds is back on defense after 50 tackles, and Jordan Clark had 2 interceptions.

 

MLB Odds/Point Spread: Arizona State Sun Devils -21, Total Odds: 37

Kenny Dillingham, a new coach at Arizona State, will provide a strong offensive plan and many transfers and returning players to bolster the defense. Although Southern Utah lost some of its best skill position players, it will be able to counter Arizona State’s aerial attack thanks to the return of its leading quarterback from the previous year, who will keep any defense on its toes.
