TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona State's win over Washington State was big, giving the Sun Devils their first road win and keeping them in control of the Pac-12 South.
The stakes will only get higher from here.
Starting with Saturday's game at Utah, Arizona State faces a tough road toward its goal of playing for the Pac-12 Championship.
The Utes have been good at home, where they knocked off No. 5 Stanford for one of the biggest wins in program history.
After that, Arizona State will play at home against Oregon State, on the road against UCLA and finish at home against rival Arizona.
Win out and the Sun Devils will be in the Pac-12 title game. Lose one or more, they will likely need help.
