The sleeping giants of the Pac-12 woke up last weekend in Tempe, Ariz.
The Arizona State football team's vaunted defense gave way to Coach Todd Graham's high-octane offense. The defense was no slouch either—it registered nine tackles for loss, four sacks, a forced fumble and recovery, and three interceptions including a 46-yard pick-six from Alden Darby.
