In 2023, Arizona State had little to play for. A self-imposed bowl ban left nothing for the Sun Devils to aspire to other than being a spoiler in the PAC 12.

This year, don't expect to see Kenny Dillingham's team in the posteseason either, even though that's now a possibility. Scholarship reductions and recruiting restrictions are in place stemming from the Herm Edwards era.

Like Cincinnati, the Sun Devils have a massive transfer portal class coming in with 21 members set to join the program. Of course, it was a transfer out that decimated the program this offseason.

Redshirt quarterback Jalen Rashada was supposed to be the future of the program but the former 4-star prospect has transferred to Georgia where he's already impressed. As a result, ASU will continue to struggle in 2024.
