An impressive upset of Utah last week transformed the complexion of Arizona State's home stretch in Year 1 under head coach Herm Edwards. The Sun Devils kicked off November sitting at .500 and one game below that mark in Pac-12 Conference play, yet they slide into the final three games in control of their divisional destiny.
Such is the tumult in the Pac-12 South, wherein UCLA remains alive for a bid to the Rose Bowl... despite being effectively eliminated from bowl eligibility after taking its seventh loss of the season last week at Oregon.
One unlikely scenario fades while another strengthens Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium.

Three Things to Watch
1. A Harry situation
The difference in each of Arizona State's last two wins — both over fellow Pac-12 South contenders — has been wide receiver N'Keal Harry. He's perhaps the best wide receiver in college football, and that became readily evident with a recent move from the outside to the slot. Were that not an impressive enough indicator of his versatility, Harry comes in as a reigning Pac-12 Player of the Week two times running; once on offense, the other for special teams.
