WATCH: Mike Bercovici Press Conference

By Charles Wulf

TEMPE, Ariz. — Mike Bercovici met with the media on Monday afternoon to discuss this week’s match up with rival Arizona. Last year, Taylor Kelly was the starter but it was Bercovici who finished the game and tried to mount a second half comeback. However, the Sun Devils were unsuccessful and fell to the Wildcats 42-35 in a game that decided the winners of the Pac-12 South. This year the stakes aren’t as high with both teams not living up to preseason expectations. The Devils need at least one win in their final two games to secure a bowl berth. Bercovici spoke about his experience in last year’s game and the importance of getting a victory in his last Duel in the Desert.
