However, Cameron Marshall's run was the lone pretty sight during that game.
For No. 22 Arizona State, it's a good thing that the polls do not have a "style" component, because if they did, the Sun Devils would not be anywhere near the top 25 after their performance Saturday night.
Coming in as an 18-point favorite over a winless Oregon State team who was without one of their best players in running back Malcolm Agnew, ASU figured to roll to an easy victory.
Three turnovers in their first three drives derailed that hope.
After a Beaver touchdown a mere 20 seconds into the second quarter, the shell-shocked Devils found themselves in a 13-0 hole.
They soon righted the ship, reeling off 21 straight points to take a lead into the half and later pulled away to win 35-20, but it was one of the uglier games in recent memory.
All told, the teams combined for 19 penalties (13 by Oregon State) and nine turnovers, a figure that could have been much higher had ASU not dropped nine would-be interceptions.
At the end of the day, a win is a win, so ASU now sits alone atop the Pac-12 South.
