TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson said quarterback Rudy Carpenter, hobbled by a left ankle injury, ``is very doubtful'' for the Sun Devils' game at No. 8 South California on Saturday.
Carpenter, hurt last week in a loss to California, didn't practice Wednesday night.
Erickson does not plan to make a decision until later in the week, but he indicated that backup Danny Sullivan would make his first career start.
``Our plan is that Sully's going to play,'' Erickson said. ``That's where it's at right now.''
Carpenter, a senior, has started 36 straight games, the second-longest active streak in the nation.
Sullivan, a junior, has completed one of eight passes for minus-1 yard in mop-up duty this season.
``I believe he's done very well,'' Erickson said. ``Proof of the pudding's Saturday. That's an interesting group to start against.''
