Sun Devils ready to bounce back from losses

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State opened the 2011 season with five wins in six games, then fell apart after being routed by Oregon, losing its final five games.

This season, the Sun Devils again started 5-1, got run over the by the Ducks and followed with a loss to UCLA last week.

So is another flailing finish on the way?

Sun Devils coach Todd Graham doesn't think so.

The knock on last year's team was its lack of discipline and penchant for withering when things got tough. The Sun Devils bounced back from their loss to Oregon last season with a win over struggling Colorado, but lost by one the next week against UCLA and faded down the stretch.

When Graham took over from Dennis Erickson, he promised to instill a level of discipline that had been missing in previous years.
