Arizona State Sun Devils Game Notes
Arizona State third-string quarterback Trenton Bourguet missed the team’s last game with a leg injury. Bourguet was elevated to the starting QB spot due to injuries to Sun Devils quarterbacks Jaden Rashada and Drew Pyne. Both Rashada and Pyne will sit for Saturday’s game. If Bourguet can’t play, Arizona State will likely have to start redshirt sophomore BYU transfer Jacob Conover. Conover started Arizona State’s last game against Utah and played poorly. In that contest, Conover completed 5 of 22 passes for 41 yards and an interception. He posted a QBR of 8.8 as the Sun Devils got smoked by the Utes in Salt Lake City 55-3. If Conover is forced to start again, things could get ugly for Arizona State once more.
UCLA Bruins Game Notes
UCLA starting quarterback Ethan Garbers suffered a right foot injury in the team’s last game, and he’s officially listed as questionable for Saturday’s game against Arizona State. Despite that designation, Garbers was spotted at practice with a noticeable limp, and he appears unlikely to play this weekend. The good news for UCLA is that freshman quarterback Dante Moore is probable for this weekend’s game after suffering a concussion last week. If for some reason neither Moore nor Garbers can play, UCLA will turn to running quarterback Collin Schlee. With that said, it does appear that Moore will be the guy on Saturday.

UCLA is 22-19 ATS since the beginning of the 2020 season.
Arizona State vs. UCLA Betting Prediction
Arizona State might be trotting out their fourth-string quarterback against a UCLA defense that has been spectacular this season. The Bruins rank 8th in the nation in opponent yards per play (4.4) and 11th in the country in opponent points per play (0.253). With Jacob Conover starting at QB against Utah last week, Arizona State gained 83 total yards, turned the ball over once, and went a combined 2 for 20 on third and fourth down conversions. It’s difficult to overstate how bad Arizona State was last week, and they could find themselves on the wrong end of another blowout on Saturday. I like the Bruins to win big at home this weekend.
