    Very impressive win.

    I am starting to really like our new coordinators. On offense, they knew our line couldn't consistently move the Huskies up front. So ASU got the ball to the outside quickly with a lot of quick hitting passes. Also gave the Huskies a bunch of new looks. And it worked. Harry is amazing by the way.

    On defense, very conservative for a Todd Graham team, but still sacked Browning 5 times and put a lot of other hits on him. Browning had no where to throw the ball. Receivers were covered all night long, which was incredible for how beat up and young our secondary is. Did anyone watch Chase Lucas? Holy smokes, that kid can play. He almost had a pick six. This guy is going to be fun to watch for the next few years.

    And we even won handily on special times. Blocked punt, fencing in the Huskies heralded return man, and Ruiz winning the kicker battle.

    No turnovers for the Sun Devils. Only 1 penalty for 5 yards.

    The bye week definitely helped, but ASU is starting to look like a very well coached team. Let's see if they can continue this, its going to be very tough. Next week, at Utah, then USC at home.

    Asu played a great game... especially the defense, which held Washington scoreless until mid 4th quarter. They had a sound game plan and stuck to it, and when the defense isn't playing all-out - blitz every play they looked infinitely better. I loved when Graham went for it on 4th down to ice the game... albeit on a pretty lucky throw by Wilkins. First win against a top 5 team since 1996, so a great win for the devils!

    Nothing like a bye week to help knock off a ranked opponent.
    Awesome game. Devils made the Dogs like mediocre.

    Agree, that was a really lucky throw. It went through the hands of Washington defensive backs and miraculously found it's way downfield to another ASU receiver. I will take it but this play could have easily turned into a disaster.

    The defense played a great game and the offense did just enough. ASU deserved the win.

    Go Devils!
