In spite of three straight losses and a lopsided start to Pac-12 play, interim Arizona State coach Shaun Aguano thinks he has a team that can compete with anyone.

Aguano — who took over for Herm Edwards a week ago — likes the Sun Devils’ talent. He told reporters on Monday he thinks there’s enough talent in Tempe to compete with anyone in the Pac-12. Arizona State just needs to be more detail-oriented.

The Sun Devils are one of the most penalized teams in the country this season. They have been flagged 30 times in four games, resulting in 294 yards of penalty yardage. Arizona State is bottom-30 in both categories. That’s certainly a factor in the 1-3 start to the season.

When it comes to talent, that’s an interesting discussion. The Sun Devils are seventh in the 247Sports Talent Composite — a measure of team talent based off recruiting rankings. They rank 41st nationally in that regard. While there has been a bit of a talent drain with all the offseason transfers who left the program, ASU was able to add impact transfers from other Power Five programs at key spots.

It’ll need all hands on deck this week. Arizona State is a massive underdog for its road game against No. 6 USC.

Here’s more of what Aguano had to say Monday to kick off the new week:
