Sun Devils look to snap six-game skid against winless Washington

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE -- Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson has lost six games in a row.

He hasn't lost his sense of humor.

Erickson had a quick reply when a school publicist opened Erickson's weekly campus news conference yesterday by asking if reporters had any questions for the coach.

Erickson quipped that someone needed to give him some answers.

The schedule may provide the only answer the Sun Devils need as they try to avoid setting a school record for consecutive losses.

Next up is a trip to Washington, where the winless Huskies await.

And then comes a visit from equally woeful Washington State, which has yet to beat a major-college opponent.

In two weeks, ASU figures to be 4-6 and needing victories over UCLA and Arizona to earn a fifth straight bowl berth.
