The Thursday night Pac-12 match-up between No. 11 UCLA (3-0) at No. 15 Arizona State (3-0) finds both teams with quarterback question marks. ASU’s Taylor Kelly won’t play, while the Bruins’ Brett Hundley may be back from his left-arm injury (or not, the team won’t say).
As for who will be playing quarterback for the Sun Devils, that’s Mike Bercovici who said, “Going into this game is nothing new, as far as anxiety or anything like that. I’ve just got to go in and do my job, not turn the ball over, get the sticks moving.”
Regarding whether preseason Heisman hopeful Hundley will play, Arizona State coach Todd Graham said, “No doubt in my mind, we’re planning for their quarterback to play.”
Said UCLA Head Coach Jim Mora, “All of our players who are out, what we try to do is make the best decisions for them based upon the knowledge we have. We depend on our doctors to get us good information, and we got the best doctors in the nation in my opinion. If they clear him, and they say he can play, just like everyone else, then we’ll play him.”
Considering this is a rival game, look for Sun Devil Stadium to be rocking with the home team smelling upset. Take ASU and the points.
