Demario Richard… A.K.A “Baby Beast Mode”:

Why everyone doesn’t call him “Baby Beast Mode” is beyond me. He has the strength to run through the opposition and is showing it this season. With 313 yards and two touchdowns, he is another spark that can fuel the fire and keep ASU in winning hopes for the game this Saturday. Besides that, another thing that Richard brings to the table is if he does well enough at RB, it allows former (kind of) running back D.J. Foster to move into a receiver slot like he’s been doing this season. This has proved to work out as Foster has a touchdown with 122 receiving yards thus far and those number will only continue to grow if Richard continues to impress at RB.

The game will kickoff at 7:30 P.M. PST and will be broadcasted on ESPN.
