Jaden Rashada will make his long-awaited return for Arizona State this Saturday against Arizona. According to Sun Devil Source’s Chris Karpman, the freshman quarterback will start for ASU in the Territorial Cup.

The 6-foot-4 freshman from Pittsburg, California, has only appeared in two games this season for ASU. Through his first two games — both starts — Rashada completed 34 of his 60 pass attempts for 403 yards and three touchdowns with one interception.

He was injured in the Week 2 loss and has not played since.

Still, currently has as many touchdown throws as the other three quarterbacks ASU has used this year combined.

Trenton Bourguet, who has been the primary starter in Rashada’s absence, has one passing touchdown in 248 attempts this year. Bourguet has averaged just 6 yards per pass attempt while throwing four interceptions. Prior to last year, Arizona State had never suffered through a nine-loss season. At 3-8 in Dillingham’s debut year, a loss to Arizona would make it consecutive 3-9 campaigns.

Rashada’s return will certainly provide ASU with a shot in the arm.

“It’s the last game of the year so you pull out all the stops,” coach Kenny Dillingham said earlier this week. “Pull out everything you’ve got. Anything you’ve done all year, you pull back, you maybe grab-bag things you’ve done from Week 1 to Week 2 to Week 3 to Week 4 to Week 5 to Week 6 all the way out, you put them all together, and you put together the best way to create explosive plays.”

Kickoff against No. 15 Arizona is set for 12:30 p.m. PT on ESPN on Saturday.
