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.
