Does ESPN know something we don't?

Yes, the Arizona State Sun Devils are heavily favored to beat UTSA in their first game of the 2018 season -- but it appears someone at ESPN jumped the gun by congratulating new ASU head coach Herm Edwards on his first win with the program.

The game is scheduled to start at 7:30 Arizona time. ESPN's tweet came at 5:29.

Edwards was a longtime ESPN analyst before accepting the ASU position after the 2017 college football season. 

Update: Maybe ESPN did indeed know something we didn't.  Edwards' Devils cruised to a 49-7 victory over UTSA on Saturday night.
