After a disappointing 38-14 loss to Stanford in the Pac-12 Championship Game that cost them a trip to the Rose Bowl, Arizona State (10-3) will be looking to rebound with a victory over Texas Tech (7-5) in the Holiday Bowl (Monday, 10:15 p.m. ET, ESPN).
The Arizona State defense will be challenged by the nation’s second-ranked passing offense, which features standout tight end Jace Amaro. Several Sun Devils defenders with an NFL future will be relied upon to slow down the Red Raiders’ prolific spread aerial attack.
