Yes, I understand that it was just Colorado, but 51 points is 51 points. It was tricky for the Sun Devils at the start, but they prevailed 51-17 when all was said and done.
This Taylor Kelly kid is starting to get on my nerves. Just when you think he can't possibly continue to be the Pac-12's No. 1 rated quarterback, he goes out and completes 20 of 28 passes for 308 yards and five touchdowns. And he added 67 yards rushing and looked pretty good doing it.
Running back—not wide receiver, running back—Marion Grice hauled in three of those touchdown passes. RB Cameron Marshall, the big brother of Oregon freshman RB Byron Marshall, had 98 yards and one TD.
ASU has some defensive issues, particularly on the line, but they seem to do what they need to do to win. DL Will Sutton is frightening, and makes up for other's mistakes.
If I was USC, I might stop selling Pac-12 Championship Game tickets until I see how ASU does against mighty Oregon on Thursday night.
