Rocky Mountain Hi

One of the most unpredictable aspects of college football isn’t the computer geeks who may be rigging the algorithms in the perplexing BCS Power Ranking system. It’s the nonconference home-and-home exchanges played by every D-I team.

The Arizona State Sun Devils have infamously been on the winning side of revenge games. After a 77-28 shellacking in Lincoln, the ´96-´97 Rose Bowl-bound Devils put a hurting on the Nebraska Cornhuskers, 19-0. When Iowa made ASU look foolish in the Midwest, the nationally ranked Hawkeyes were obliterated here in ´04 by a score of 44-7.

Last year, the Devils drubbed the Colorado Buffaloes and their anemic offense in Boulder, and the Buffs will be seeking redemption here in Tempe.
