No. 15 Sun Devils prepare for UNLV

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- After opening the season with two easy victories, now comes the hard part for Arizona State.


The 15th-ranked Sun Devils face number two Georgia on September 20th in one of their more eagerly anticipated games in recent memory. But first ASU has to take care of lightly regarded UNLV on Saturday night.

Coach Dennis Erickson says he doesn't want his players to think about the Bulldogs. He wants them concentrating on beating the Rebels.

UNLV is coming off a three-touchdown loss to Mountain West Conference Utah in Salt Lake City.

The Sun Devils have breezed to expected victories over Northern Arizona and Stanford, and they'll be heavily favored to make it three in a row over UNLV.
