Premium Podcast: ASU-Cal preview

The latest episode of the 'Sun Devil Source Report' features a preview of Arizona State's upcoming contest with Cal, a conversation with publisher Ryan Gorcey and a mailbag segment.

This episode of the 'Sun Devil Source Premium Report' is loaded with content including a breakdown of Arizona State's upcoming opponent, Cal, a conversation with publisher Ryan Gorcey, and a mailbag segment featuring questions from Devils' Sanctuary subscribers. 

Chris Karpman and Kerry Crowley begin the episode with a look at matchups between ASU's rushing offense and Cal's rushing defense and Cal's passing offense against the Sun Devils' passing defense. 

Chris and Kerry talk about Cal's reloaded offensive personnel, including quarterback Davis Webb and the nation's leading receiver in Chad Hansen, plus the new wrinkles first-year offensive coordinator Jake Spavital has brought to the Bears' scheme. 

After examining why Cal's rushing defense has suffered this season and how they anticipate ASU to attack the Bears Saturday, Chris and Kerry wrap up their preview with predictions for the teams' Pac-12 openers.

In the second segment, Kerry and Chris bring in Gorcey to further dissect the Bears' team and why it has enjoyed offensive success through three games after so much personnel turnover. 

Gorcey provides insight into Cal's two-deep on both offense and defense and looks at the different types of offenses the Bears have faced this season and how those teams have effectively challenged the Bears' defense. 

The episode culminates with a premium mailbag segment with questions culled directly from the Devils' Sanctuary. In this segment, Kerry and Chris discuss what type of impact Salamo Fiso should have in his return to the ASU defense, what improvements ASU can make in conference play, and whether N'Keal Harry breaks the famed 'Savage Scale.'
