ASU vs. Oregon State: Victory through the eyes of twitter

The media members were back in the friendly confines of the Midfirst Bank press box this week at Sun Devil Stadium.

It might have been somewhat sloppy, but the Sun Devils got the job done Saturday night against the Beavers. Here is the blow by blow in 140 characters or less by fans and media on twitter.

ASU got off to a roaring fast start and four solid passes from Taylor Kelly to Jaelen Strong helped the effort. It was also Marion Grice's first touchdown since the Washington game.

Two Taylor Kelly interceptions, another Oregon State three-and-out, and a Robert Nelson interception later, D.J. Foster picked up his first rushing touchdown of the season..

The Beavers muffed a punt and just 87 seconds later the Sun Devils were in the end zone again courtesy of a 1-yard run by Marion Grice.

The ASU basketball assistant coach sounds like he might be subliminally sending a message to his team as well who started up play last week and are now 3-0.

The last six minutes of the first half seemed like an eternity as Oregon State drove down the field and timeouts were exchanged in the last 30 seconds.

In the iconic words of Brett Musburger, "And here come the (insert name of team coming back)." The third quarter lacked excitement aside from an Alden Darby interception. The Beavers and Sun Devils traded three-and-outs before Oregon State capitalized.

Not to mention Taylor Kelly was sacked to end the quarter as Oregon State was creeping back into the game.

ASU doesn't even have a chance to play "Bama." Still a good chuckle to be had from the former ASU baseball player who spent this season with the Detroit Tigers single-A minor league affiliate.

Oh Dennis... A huge play for the Sun Devils though because Oregon State could have made it a one score game if the Beavers put it through the uprights.

Possible but not likely that Gonzalez will reach the NCAA freshman record this season. This put some assurance into Sun Devil fans but still two scores is too close for comfort.

Done. Finished. Cooked. The fat lady sings. ASU with a chance to clinch the Pac-12 South with a win next week.

Yeah...Just remember all this, simple enough right? Hopefully it won't have to come to that though.

Trouble in paradise. This came to light after the game and was the reason Carl Bradford sat out the rest of the second half. Todd Graham said post game that the issue will be handled "in house."
