Arizona State Sun Devils 2023 football schedule released
Arizona State’s 2023 football schedule has been released. In coach Kenny Dillingham’s first season, the Sun Devils will get eight home games for just the third time since 2000.
The first four games for Dillingham and ASU come at Sun Devil Stadium, as will five of the first six. ASU opens the year on Thursday, Aug. 31 against Southern Utah.
Then it’ll host Oklahoma State and Fresno State in back-to-back weeks.
Pac-12 play opens with a bang right out of the gates as Lincoln Riley and the USC Trojans come to town on Sept. 23. ASU then heads to Berkeley to take on Cal on Sept. 30. Dillingham and Co. return home on Oct. 7 to host Deion Sanders and the Colorado Buffaloes.
ASU’s 2023 schedule features a bye week right in the middle on Oct. 14.
After the off week, the Sun Devils head to Washington to face a Husky team they stunned in 2022. Washington will be coming off what figures to be an emotional game against Oregon, but given the way the 2022 showdown in Tempe turned out, ASU can expect to get a hungry UW squad.
Nov. 4 and Nov. 11 feature back-to-back road trips to Utah and UCLA. ASU then returns home to face Dillingham’s old squad in Oregon (Nov. 18). Dillingham was the Ducks’ offensive coordinator in 2022 before being named the head coach at ASU.
The season concludes with the Territorial Cup on Saturday, Nov. 25. Only Oregon and Oregon State are playing on Black Friday this upcoming season in the Pac-12. The Sun Devils will look to take back the cup in front of their home fans.
