Icing on the Cupcake?
With a football program of ASUs caliber, a contest against the NAU Lumberjacks is a guaranteed notch in the win column. However, as we learned in 2003 and 2006 when the boys from Flagstaff came to town, not-so-impressive showings by the Devils can spell later-season doom. In the 03 tussle, the outcome wasnt cemented until the fourth quarter in a 34-14 win. (The Devils wound up 5-7 that season.) During the 06 campaign, a more dominant first-half performance led to a sounder 35-14 beating, but it was in no way a pasting. (Record that season? 7-6.) What will the 2008 home and regular-season opener against NAU say about the highly touted and nationally ranked ASU Sun Devils? Head down to Sun Devil Stadium and find out.
