Dawg Day Afternoon

Toward the conclusion of the Arizona State Sun Devils’ 41-17 dismantling of the Stanford Cardinal on September 6 in Tempe, the gold-clad student section held up signs reading “Bring on Georgia.” This occurred a week before the Devils’ next opponent, UNLV, came to town. Appropriately, ASU channeled ex-coach Dirk Koetter and lost 23-20 to lowly UNLV. It was the stinkiest, raunchiest dump we’ve seen squeezed out on Frank Kush Field since a 35-7 debacle against New Mexico State in 1999.

Now the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs are coming to town for a game on Saturday, September 20, at Sun Devil Stadium, 500 East Veterans Way in Tempe. So, do you really want a piece of UGA? Really? Our guess is only if the Sun Devils remember how to play football and somehow pull off the upset.
