Arizona State made it through a difficult stretch in the schedule with two wins and two losses, though it could have been a whole lot better.
Even after letting opportunities slip through their fingers, the Sun Devils still have a chance at their main goal: The Pac-12 championship.
At 1-1, Arizona State is right behind 1-0 UCLA in the Pac-12 South as it gets ready for the bulk of the conference season.
The Sun Devils traded wins and losses during their brutal four-game stretch, beating Wisconsin and Southern California, while losing to Stanford and Notre Dame.
Now that the tough part is done, Arizona State can get on with trying to reach the Pac-12 championship game, starting with Saturday's home game against Colorado.
