Hamilton- ASU officials looking ahead but not too far
 
 App St's Satterfield - “I’d like to start any series with any team in the state of North Carolina — I just think it makes sense to play the teams in your state. We’re going to have seven FBS teams in the state of North Carolina, and it doesn’t make sense for any of us to have to go out of state to try to find games..." ASU AD Cobb said there have been no discussions with East Carolina or any of the state’s four ACC schools.
