Arizona State has never endured a five-game losing streak under head coach Todd Graham, but the Sun Devils will need to put together a near-perfect performance if they want to avoid dropping their fifth straight game this Saturday.
In this week's edition of the 'Sun Devil Source Premium Report,' hosts Kerry Crowley and Chris Karpman provide an extensive breakdown of ASU's upcoming matchup with No. 6 Washington and reveal the factors that have contributed to the Huskies' quick rise to the top of the Pac-12 under head coach Chris Petersen.
Kerry and Chris analyze the first three years of Petersen's tenure in Seattle and explain the recruiting strategy the Huskies took in Petersen's first few years on the job that netted Washington so many key contributors to this year's team. After explaining how Washington's success in 2016 was still hard to forecast, Kerry and Chris break down the Huskies' personnel and explain how ASU can try to attack Washington this week.
Based on Washington's most recent contest, a 26-13 loss against USC, Kerry and Chris found small, but important flaws in the Huskies that ASU can attempt to take advantage of this week. While the Huskies have the best turnover margin in the Pac-12 and both a top 10 scoring offense and top 10 scoring defense nationally, Kerry and Chris explain why Washington has enjoyed sustained success this season but also, where the Huskies are most vulnerable.
After offering their predictions for Saturday's game, Kerry and Chris dive into a discussion about ASU's quarterback play in 2016 and explain why a program with four highly regarded quarterbacks in the fold and a four-star quarterback committed for the Class of 2017 is considering adding Alabama transfer Blake Barnett.
Additionally, Kerry and Chris also break down ASU's potential postseason destinations and provide a sweeping overview of where the Sun Devils would end up based on the different ways the season plays out for other Pac-12 teams.
Lastly, the 'Sun Devil Source Premium Report' touches on an important recruiting weekend approaching in the near future as Chris explains ASU's approach on the recruiting trail in the coming weeks.
