At the half, ASU put up 30 on the Vikings. Steven Threet has shown a good pocket presence and is placing the ball within reach of his wide receivers. So far, Threet is 12 for 18 on 175 yards passing.

Cameron Marshall has shown a lot so far, scoring two touchdowns on long runs (50 and 38 yards, respectively). On both plays, Marshall was able to get out in open space on the left side of the field, using his quickness and breakaway speed to completely outclass the Portland State secondary.

Deantre Lewis, the true freshman RB out of Norco, California, has also contributed to the cause, catching a pass out in the flat and running 28 yards after the catch for the score.

Thomas Weber has been perfect on all four of his extra point tries, and the ASU defense has also caused a safety on an intentional grounding call.

It hasn't been all rosy, however. The Sun Devils have been committing a slew of penalties. Nine penalties for 84 yards, to be exact. One penalty was for excessive celebration after Marshall's 50 yard TD, but the defense needs to have a lot more self-control if it would like to be an effective unit in Pac-10 play.

Aaron Plfugrad, the transfer from Oregon, has been a factor, making four receptions for 57 yards. After a rough first possession, the team has settled down and looks to be quite comfortable tonight.
