Massive Midday Previews the Pac-12
It’s the weekend, all of you.
You know what that means.
Let’s see what the Big Noon Kickoff Crew has for us this Saturday morning as we prepare for the return of the Pac-12 and the grand primetime matchup between Clemson # 1 and Notre Dame # 4.
Joel Klatt previewed ASU against No. 20 USC
Two Pac-12 games have already been canceled due to COVID-19, but the big one is still scheduled for this morning.
Here’s what to expect when the Sun Devils take on the Trojans in 20th place.
Early games are rare in the Pac-12, but the Big Noon crew – this week with special guests Howie Long, Emmanuel Acho and Terry Bradshaw – think it’s good marketing for the West Coast conference.
The crew collapses Edwards’ success
Herm Edwards spent eight seasons as head coach in the NFL, but only four ended up with his teams – the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs – topping .500.
However, Edwards has led the Arizona State Sun Devils to break records in each of their two seasons in Tempe, AZ, and the crew has rated Edwards’ success in the college echelons.

Ian Book ready to wrestle with Tigers
Arguably the biggest game of college football season will take place on Saturday night, as the senior Clemson Tigers – without Trevor Lawrence – will face Notre Dame No. 4, led by quarterback Ian Book, who was previewed the game with former Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn on Saturday morning.
The Jim Harbaugh riddle
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has set an overall record of 48:19 as the Wolverines head coach, spanning five consecutive winning seasons and three 10-winning seasons.
But Harbaugh never defeated the state of Ohio (0: 5) and was only moderately successful against the state of Michigan (3: 3).
The crew discusses whether Harbaugh has lived up to expectations of his alma mater.
Top of the totem pole
