Will Sutton is a large, scary man. The Arizona State defensive tackle was an unholy terror on the football field last year, totaling 13 sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss en route to winning the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year award. With Sutton on every preseason All-American list, head coach Todd Graham is considering expanding the ways in which he utilizes his star:

Well, good luck dealing with the 6-foot-1, 288- pound monster heading your way in short-yardage situations, defenses. If Sutton will indeed be doing his best Refrigerator Perry impersonation this season, we should all circle our calendars for Oct. 5. On that night, Arizona State will travel to Dallas to take on Notre Dame and defensive tackle Louis Nix, who played a little offense himself this spring:
Nix weighed in at 357 at the start of fall camp, so if the two do end up running into each other, it's going to be like a "Pacific Rim" sequel as 600+ pounds of All-American talent collide.
