ASU Sun Devils vs. Oregon State Beavers
Week 5 brings the second Pac-12 matchup of the season for the Sun Devils. This one looks to be a bit lesser of an opponent, as there aren’t many high expectations for Oregon State this year. They were able to stay competitive against ASU last year though, losing by two scores.
Sun Devil Stadium, 500 E. Veterans Way, Tempe, 480.965.3482, thesundevils.com, Saturday, September 29, pricing and time TBA.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks
Two teams who have been heavily questioned about their offseason moves will be playing the first of their two matchups this year. Come see if the Seahawks can bounce back from their horrific collapse last year, and if the Cardinals can prove that they truly are a 2018 dark horse playoff team.
