Arizona State Vs. California: Will Sutton Opening Eyes

Arizona State defensive lineman Will Sutton didn't put in a box score that stood out, but his performance against the Utah Utes in a 37-7 victory wasn't anything but spectacular. Sutton was credited with four tackles, one tackle for loss and half a sack, but he often found himself making solid penetration into the backfield against the Utes.

For the season, he is in the top 10 in NCAA sacks (3.5) and tackles for loss. ASU head coach Todd Graham told The Arizona Republic that it's just the beginning for the junior.

"I can't imagine there's a defensive tackle in the country that has played better than Will Sutton has," Graham said at Monday's weekly news conference. "He's been pretty good."

Sutton is second on the Sun Devils with 26 total tackles through four games this season. He also has two pass breakups. And it's likely that the California Golden Bears will be finding a way to keep him out of the backfield and away from quarterback Zach Maynard this week.
