Tempe, AZ – The House of Heat had the thermometer cranking tonight with a game time temperature of 107 degrees. It took a little more time than expected for the Sun Devils to warm up, but once they did it wasn’t a contest. ASU dominated Sacramento State 55-0 at Sun Devil Stadium.

First Quarter

Sacramento State received the kick off and got off to a solid start by converting four third downs and driving to the Sun Devil 20 yard line before having a field goal blocked. It was all ASU after that. The Sun Devils got on the board with just under four minutes left in the first quarter when Taylor Kelly found De’Marieya Nelson for a 16 yard TD pass. Kelly followed that up with a 41 yard scoring strike to Kevin Ozier. At the end of the first quarter, ASU led Sacramento State 14-0.


Second Quarter

The Sun Devils put the pedal to the metal and continued their high octane scoring in the second quarter. Marion Grice had a 6 yard scoring run, Kelly hit Chris Coyle for a 33 yard scoring strike and then Grice for 26 yards and another score. The Devils were on cruise control by halftime leading the Hornets 42-0.

Third Quarter

Things slowed down a bit in the second half. Kicker Zane Gonzalez starting the scoring with 40 yard field goal extending the ASU lead to 45-0. After a Grandville Taylor interception and the Devils near the goal line, Michael Eubank came in the game to take it in from 4 yards out. At the end of the third quarter, the Sun Devils had 461 yards of total offense and a commanding lead of 52-0.

Fourth Quarter

Mike Bercovici and Eubank rotated possessions in the fourth quarter, with Eubank putting together some solid drives. Gonzalez hit another field goal at the start of the fourth quarter to make the final score 55-0.

The Sun Devils crossed this line plenty of times on Thursday night.
