The Sun Devils of Old Show Up for the 1st Half

It's been ugly. Like, really ugly. ASU of '08 and '09 ugly. If there were one bright spot today, I'd share it with you. The offense has been non-existent. The D has looked porous upfront and in the secondary. Thomas Weber missed a 37 yard field-goal. That's the story for how the Sun Devils are down 26-3 in the first half.

Threet started the game off with a series of errant throws, running into some luck, and Weber capitalized on a FG. After that, it was all Cal. With 2:58 left in the 1st quarter, Cal drove the ball 72 yards in 4 plays ending the drive with a Shane Vereen direct snap TD. The very next drive Riley hooked up with Keenan Allen for a 4 yard TD toss. After a blocked extra point, the Bears led 16-3. 3 Minutes later, Riley threw a 52 yd bomb to Marvin Jones to put the Bears up 23-3. With the half winding down, Riley led the Bears on a 1:30 drive passing all over the Sun Devils and bringing the Bears inside the 10 yard line. The Bears kicked a FG as time expired to give them a 23 point first half lead.

It's going to take a much greater effort from ASU to pull back in this one.
