ASU vs. Cal: Sun Devils leading by 10 after 3 quarters

The ASU Sun Devils lead the Cal Golden Bears after three quarters, 20-10, but they run the risk of allowing Cal to climb back into things after allowing a field goal late in the quarter. Defensive play is strong on both sides, but Taylor Kelly has been patient, avoiding mistakes or interceptions. As a result, ASU is getting the better of things.

Kelly is 17-for-34 through three quarters, picking up 158 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. The team has spread out the rushing attack, with five different backs carrying the ball. Senior Cameron Marshall leads things for ASU, collecting 59 yards on 11 carries.

On defense, junior defensive tackle Will Sutton is a standout among the front seven, but all of them are working together to get pressure on Cal's Zach Maynard. Maynard has been sacked five times through three quarters.

ASU is in control in Berkley. If they can keep it up for 15 more minutes, they're looking at a 4-1 start to the season.
