2008 RETRO GAME 8: ASU at Oregon State

WITH QUARTERBACK Lyle Moevao injured early, it was a see-saw, back and forth tilt that made for great theater. The Beavs finally found their offensive rhythm in the third quarter and withstood a furious Sun Devil comeback attempt -- none bigger than when Victor Butler improvised in the end zone to seal the victory.

Nov. 1 | Arizona State | W, 27-25

SHORT RECAP: With a Rose Bowl berth now in sight, Lyle Moevao was knocked out of the game early and ASU took the lead in the third quarter. But James Rodgers and Jacquizz Rodgers provided the offensive firepower to bring the Beavs back, Shane Morales had two TD grabs and Victor Butler made a very huge play at the end to close out the win.

KEY STAT: 0 - The number of two point conversion ASU converted.

KEY QUOTE: "It was a difficult game, but our guys never quit, never blinked, never got tight and they just tried to keep making plays. They had a great drive at the end of the game with a great play by Victor Butler." - Coach Mike Riley
