Weber State Wildcats will attempt to pull off a major upset when they go up against the #19 Arizona State Sun Devils on Thursday night.
Weber State won their first and last games in 2013, but they also happened to lose the 10 games in between. The Wildcats were forced to make a coaching change after giving up 490 points while only scoring 197 points themselves. Coach Jay Hill, who is known in coaching circles as an excellent recruiter, will look to move them up the Big Sky standings this year.
The Wildcats' best offensive player this year should be Bo Bolen, who is both their running back and kick returner. Bolen rushed for 549 yards on 123 carries in 2013, and he also caught 27 passes for 203 yards. He had six touchdowns last year, including one on a kickoff return.
Arizona State finished their 2013 season as Pac-12 South Division champs after going 8-1 in the conference and 10-4 overall. They beat won three of their four games against top 20 opponents, but they did lose to Texas Tech in the Holiday Bowl at the end of the year.
Sun Devils quarterback Taylor Kelly, who passed for 3,635 yards and 28 touchdowns last season, could end up with some Heisman votes if he can lead his team to even more wins this year. Arizona State are expected to struggle on defense, though, after losing three key starters and multiple backups.
