ASU wins at Cal for first time since 1997

The Arizona State Sun Devils took care of the California Golden Bears on Saturday, winning 27-17 on a sunny Berkeley afternoon.

The Sun Devils moved to 4-1 overall and 2-0 in Pac-12 Conference with the win. After building a 17-7 lead late in the third quarter, Arizona State saw Cal bring the game within 3. Cal quarterback Zach Maynard hit Keenan Allen on a 10-yard touchdown pass with nine minutes left to play.

But the Sun Devils answered back with a quick scoring drive just three minutes later, as Taylor Kelly found Kevin Ozier for a 22-yard touchdown pass and a 27-17 lead.

The Bears committed a whopping 12 penalties for 119 yards, while Maynard completed just 9-28 passes in the loss that dropped them to 1-4.

Box Score Hero: QB Taylor Kelly, Arizona State. Kelly threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns while avoiding any interceptions.

Rankings Ramifications: Arizona State was receiving some votes last week, so the win will likely have them creep closer to the top 25.

But Did They Cover? The Sun Devils were favored by 2.5 points and did cover.

Next Week's Schedule: Arizona State will take a week off, while Cal prepares to host UCLA.
