Arizona State Vs. Washington State Score Update: Sun Devils Lead 7-6 After Jamal Miles Kickoff Return Touchdown

The Arizona St. Sun Devils looked to bounce back against the Washington St. Cougars on Saturday after last week's 29-28 loss to the UCLA Bruins. Through one quarter of play, the Sun Devils have had mixed results in doing that and enter the second period up 7-6.

Jamal Miles kicked things off for ASU early when he fielded the opening kickoff at the ASU five-yard line. Miles proceeded to take the kickoff return back 95 yards for the touchdown, giving the Sun Devils a 7-0 lead just 13 seconds into the game.

The Cougars struck back later in the period with an 85-yard touchdown pass from Connor Halliday to Marquess Wilson. Washington State did not convert on the two-point conversion, however, and the Sun Devils still maintained a lead at 7-6.

ASU struggled to generate offense until late in the period. The Sun Devils recorded only one first down until the final drive of the period, when the Sun Devils marched 31 yards down the field. ASU begins the second quarter at the Cougars 22-yard line.
