A good amount of Arizona State media members made the trip to Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City. Here are the tweets that came across the House of Sparky timeline both from the press box and back in Tempe.
Those guys at the Pac-12 Network are pretty smart.
Kelly finishes the first drive with a 10-yard touchdown run. His sixth of 2013. #ASU up 7-0 with 11:35 left in the 1st.— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) November 9, 2013
The Sun Devils struck first but it would be another three quarters before ASU and Taylor Kelly found the end zone again.
#ASU's defense is showing their old head coach what's up. 3 plays, -19 yards on the first drive— Brad Denny (@BDenny29) November 9, 2013
The first defensive stand of the afternoon seemed promising but it would get a lot uglier before it got a whole lot better.
Very bad drive for the ASU defense. But two point attempt by Utah no good. ASU leads 7-6 with 2:04 left in the first quarter.— Devils Digest (@DevilsDigest) November 9, 2013
The missed two point conversion would end up costing the Utes, but that drive really did gobble up some time on the clock.
Man, that was a powerful, explosive run from Deantre Lewis. And he fumbles on the next play. #Utah ball.— Danny Shapiro (@DsShapi) November 9, 2013
*Sigh* Todd Graham preaches ball security and he showed that he is a man of his word when Lewis did not get another carry the rest of the game.
This was the only score between numerous punts by both teams and would actually round out the scoring in a fairly uneventful and defensive-minded first half.
Looks like the indecisive Taylor Kelly has resurfaced in Salt Lake City today.— Vince Marotta (@Vincemarotta) November 9, 2013
Kelly did not know what he wanted to do with the football which led to him scrambling and getting sacked six times.
It's now 12-7 Utah as Andy Phillips knocks through a 43-yard FG. ASU now with the ball looking to jumpstart their offense.— Pac-12 Networks (@Pac12Networks) November 9, 2013
Although Utah was scoring, the Utes weren't converting red zone opportunities into touchdowns and it came back to haunt them
Nelson beaten by Anderson on a post for 58 yards. Good protection by Utah OL there. Ball at the ASU 12.— ASUDevils.com (@ASUDevilscom) November 9, 2013
Dres Anderson was easily the best wide receiver all game hauling in four catches for 100 yards good for 25 yards per reception.
Travis Wilson hit Sean Fitzgerald on a back shoulder throw for a touchdown and a hint of doubt was starting to creep in the mind of ASU fans.
Defense did their job there...too bad the offense is still stuck in Pullman— Brad Denny (@BDenny29) November 9, 2013
The third quarter ended with a Utah three and out and set the tone for the Sun Devils' comeback.
2 yard run by Taylor Kelly for a TD and the Sun Devils have a pulse. ASU closes the gap to 19-14. 13:12 to play in the game.— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) November 9, 2013
The comeback was on in the fourth quarter as Kelly scampered in for his second rushing touchdown of the game.
Impressive, quick TD drive by ASU to go up 20-19 w/ 2:37 left. Failed 2-pt. conversion.— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) November 10, 2013
After numerous stands by the ASU defense to give the offense a chance, Taylor Kelly finally converted to Rick Smith for 14 yards and a touchdown.
Sutton got a pick????— Omar C. Bolden (@Os_Island) November 10, 2013
Yes he did Omar. Sutton picked off a pass with just over a minute to play to seal the win for the Sun Devils.
Smellin roses!— Ryan Burr (@RyanBurr303) November 10, 2013
All the way from Packard!
