Heading into a rather lackluster day in college football, one of the biggest games of the week featured the Oregon Ducks against the visiting Arizona State Sun Devils.
Both teams had only lost one game heading into this matchup and both teams still had much to prove. Without star RB LaMichael James, many thought that Arizona State would have a chance to pull off a big upset in what may be a preview of the first-ever Pac-12 Championship game.
While Arizona State did play a very close game and was even able to establish a lead over the Ducks in the third quarter, the Ducks offense proved to be too much for an impressive Sun Devils defense as the Ducks ended up rolling to the tune of a 41-27 win, despite not having James and losing starting QB Darron Thomas early in the second half.
This game proved to be very entertaining, and though there was a winner and a loser, both teams took positives and negatives away from this game.
