Before doing this I actually expected ASU to have a slightly higher advantage due to their walkover game against UC Davis, however the Illinois game looks to have brought things fairly even.

As it stands right now, both teams provide similar profiles, leaning heavily on the pass and less so on the run. Neither team is particularly elite defensively, although both have done a good job at shutting down their opponents run games. Another thing that stands out is the equal turnover margin, given the overall evenness of the two teams this game could come down to who makes the fewest mistakes.

Anywho, I can throw up other numbers if there's anything else anyone wants to see. These are all the really basic stats that give a decent picture of each team.
