This upcoming Saturday, Arizona State will be back at home to take on the Colorado Buffaloes in what should be another big-time atmospheric game at Mountain America Stadium.
Two weeks ago against USC, ASU’s home crowd had their best attendance in a while when they played USC. The capacity for the game is set at 53,599 people. ASU and USC fans combined to have more than that with 54,166 people going to cheer for their respective teams.
With head coach Deion Sanders coming to town and his son quarterback phenom Shaddeur Sanders, it should be another electric atmosphere for the home team on Saturday.
Going into the game, Colorado (3-2) is favored by only -4.5 to Arizona State (1-4). This is probably due to the reality that Arizona State has had competitive losses in the Pac-12 over the last two weeks and Colorado has dropped the last two games they played after starting 3-0.
To their defense, they played number 10-ranked Oregon and number 8-ranked USC in those losses.
With the spread set at -4.5 to begin the week, the money line for Colorado is set at -200. I look for both numbers to go up the more we get closer to kick-off especially with all-around talent Travis Hunter likely returning to the field this week for Colorado.
Kick-off is set at 3:30 P.M. in what should be a great atmosphere at Mountain America Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
