By-The-Numbers: Arizona State

D'Andre Goodwin (Dawgman.com)

Well, the numbers for the ASU-UW game this Saturday in Seattle are just poor, instead of the downright awful figures that have been a part of this feature during some the Huskies' other games earlier this season. And with a nod toward this week's elections, UW fans would love to see some re-distribution of the statistical wealth, starting with a notch in the win column against the Sun Devils.
