While Arizona fans may feel confident heading into the UA match up with Arizona State, Arizona head coach Sean Miller is a bit more cautious.
"Arizona State has been decimated with injuries from the onset," Miller said. "If you take one player out from a week's worth of practice, if one of your key starters is misses several games and as he comes back you have another player go down, it chips away at your success.
"Arizona State is five or six different plays away from having a much different record inside of our conference. There's no question, they've dealt with more adversity than any team in our conference and I don't think it's even been close."
By Miller's standards, Sunday's game should not be considered a trap game because it is simply a tough contest.
"I think the furthest thing from the truth is to look at this game for us as a trap game or something of that nature," Miller said. "I think anyone who looks at that game from that perspective doesn't have a real good feel for the Pac-10 or both teams."
