For the most part, the Sun Devils looked the part of Pac-12 South contenders on Thursday night in Tempe as they took care of business against the UC Davis Aggies, 48-14.
Brock Osweiler was efficient, completing 19 of 26 passes for 262 yards and two touchdown passes to Aaron Pflugrad. Cameron Marshall was the top producer on offense, racking up 23 rushing yards and 86 receiving yards, scoring two touchdowns in the process.
While the passing defense has room for improvement, the running game was absolutely squashed by ASU's stout front seven.
The Sun Devils kept the shutout going into the fourth quarter before the reserve defense gave up two touchdowns. All in all, everything looked great on Thursday, which is exactly the way you want it if you're coach Dennis Erickson. Now, if only Brock Osweiler can be 100% going into the Missouri game, ASU will be in good shape.
