Arizona State popular pick for Rose Bowl, Fiesta Bowl in college football bowl projections
The Arizona State football team has a chance for a very special season, according to the latest college football bowl projections.
Several have the Sun Devils, who are 5-1 overall and 3-0 in Pac-12 Conference play, going to the Rose Bowl or the Fiesta Bowl at the end of the season.
The sites that have ASU in the Rose Bowl predict that Herm Edwards' team will win the Pac-12 title.
The Fiesta Bowl projections have ASU losing in the Pac-12 title game to Oregon, but getting an at-large bid to the game in Glendale, Arizona after finishing 11-1 in the regular season and then losing to Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship Game.

Jack Follman writes: "The Sun Devils win the Conference (truly) for the first time since 1996? Which is crazy. And what better bowl pairing than a rematch of the 1997 Rose Bowl? No team looks stronger right now with a better option at QB, which is what I think separates them from other top teams like the Oregon schools and UCLA. This is a huge breakthrough for Herm Edwards and staff for a season that started with controversy that should still linger."
