New, 2 comments

Here are the critical stats that led to ASU's big win.

USA TODAY Sports

0 - Punts by ASU's senior punter Josh Hubner. Not a bad way to end a career. ASU had nine touchdowns, a lost fumble, a turnover on downs and the end of the game.

2 - Yards lost by ASU's offense, excluding kneel downs. Navy managed just two tackles-for-loss, for a yard each.

3 - Touchdowns on his first three catches for senior Rashad Ross. He scored from 16, 52 and 50 yards, and his speed was uncoverable by Navy's secondary.

2:43 - Duration of ASU's longest scoring drive of their nine. That included three touchdown drives under one minute.

7.8 - ASU's yards per carry. The Sun Devil offensive line asserted their will over Navy's small front seven, giving the backs plenty of running room.

8th - Win of the year for the Sun Devils, surpassing everyone's expectations.

9.6 - Yards per play by ASU's offense, just shy of the national bowl record of 9.9 set by Stanford in the 2011 Orange Bowl.

11.4 - Yards per carry by Marion Grice. The junior ran for a career-high 159 yards on just 14 carries and scored two touchdowns.

13 - Sacks on the year by Will Sutton after collecting 2.5 in another dominant effort.

27 - Halftime lead for ASU, the largest halftime edge in school history.

29 - Touchdown passes on the year for Taylor Kelly after tossing four against Navy, the second-most in school history behind Andrew Walter's 30 in 2004.

36 - First downs by ASU, tied for the most ever by a bowl team. (Oklahoma in the 1991 Gator Bowl and Marshall in the 2001 GMAC Bowl).

37 - Passing yards by Navy, the lowest of the season for ASU's defense (yeah, it's Navy, but still...)

44 - Combined tackles-for-loss by Will Sutton (23.5) and Carl Bradford (20.5) after Sutton notched 3.5 and Bradford three against Navy Those 44 are the second most in school history behind the 1978 tandem of Al Harris and Bob Kohrs.

57 - Season reception total by ASU tight end Chris Coyle after hauling in four passes yesterday, which breaks Zach Miller's single-season tight end record.

62 - Points by ASU, setting a new Pac-10/12 record.

277.4 - Taylor Kelly's passer rating, a career-high. He finished 17 of 19 for 268 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in a masterful effort.

380 - ASU's rushing yards, 67 more than Navy, who entered the game as the nation's 6th best rushing team.

648 - Yards of total offense from ASU, 57 more than their previous season-high set against Colorado.
