ASU Vs. Mizzou: Sun Devils Take 7-3 Lead After 1st Quarter

Between traffic and parking the sellout crowd of over 71,000 fans were a bit late for the start of this exciting game between the Arizona State Sun Devils and the Missouri Tigers. The first quarter 

Arizona got the ball first and quickly drove down to the 25-yard line behind several successful screen passes and a 25-yard pass from quarterback Brock Osweiler to tight end Chris Coyle. The drive stalled there and ended in a missed 42-yard field goal from new ASU kicker, Alex Garouttte. 

The Devils got the ball back quickly after the defense forced a three-and-out. After a few running plays to soften things up, Oweiler had plenty of time to find a streaking Gerell Robinson for a 51-yard completion. Osweiler then threaded a pass between multiple defenders for a touch down to Jamal Miles.

The first scoring drive of the game was just five plays and went for 77 yards, demonstrating what the high-powered Sun Devil offense can do.

Missouri came right back with a series of mid-range passes and nifty running from Tiger quarterback James Franklin. The drive suffered a 10-yard holding penalty and the Tigers settled for a 24-yard field goal.

The first quarter ends with the ASU Sun Devils driving again. The ball was on the Tiger 23-yard line as the period ended. The Sun Devils finished the quarter with 140 total yards compared to 47 for Mizzou.
