Arizona State Sun Devils quarterback Taylor Kelly isn't taking any opponent lightly, especially not a 1-3 California Golden Bears team looking to make up for disappointing losses over the course of the young 2012 season.
ASU will face Cal on Saturday at Memorial Stadium in Northern California, and our friends over at House of Sparky caught up with the sophomore signal caller with respect to the matchup and a few other interesting tidbits.
When asked about the significance of being winless at Cal since 1997, Kelly replied, "We got to come out with a great focus this week and we had a good practice so far; stay focused on the road and go get this win." Kelly has made a living staying calm under duress, and it shows in his production in 2012. He ranks first in passer rating in the Pac-12 and ninth in the nation.
He has thrown for 1,000 yards, six touchdown passes, two interceptions and has has averaged 4.5 yards per carry through four games.
