This was a must-needed victory for our Arizona State Sundevils. We knocked off the SI Preseason #1 team in the country, Oregon State. JR Redmond WHO!? I've been saying it for two seasons now; Delvon Flowers is a much better polished athlete. He proved my point on Saturday with 226 yards on 232 carries, with touchdown runs of 78 and 26. JUST STAY HEALTHY DELVON! YOU'RE OUR PREMIER BACK!!! Now if it wasn't for his injury last year, I wonder where he'd be one of our best runners ever.
Jeff Krohn was incredible once again, despite throwing some of the ugliest passes I've ever seen. His stats were mortal – completing 8 out of 25 for 185 yards. However, he averaged over 23 yards a pass, and set up McDonald's touchdown with one of the prettiest throws of the year. Tom Pace is the workhorse of the backfield. He'll get the call on third and short, and instead of getting just the necessary yardage; he would run for some 20+ yards.
The Defense looked better than previous weeks. Jonathon Smith and Simonton looked lost most of the game. Suggs played well, not as great as I was hoping for. The defense as a whole had their best game this season.
If we're to knock off Washington this Saturday (MY FIRST NO SHOW TO A GAME - World Series baby! Go Yanks) our D MUST MUST MUST MUST step up huge. I'm predicting a high scoring blowout... I give us the nod by a field goal.
