Tonight's season opener against NAU marks the beginning of the "Speaking Victory" era in Tempe, and all eyes have been focused on the Sun Devil quarterbacking situation.
Taylor Kelly: He looked good on the first drive. The first play was a designed rollout to his right, where he found a crossing D.J. Foster for a 16-yard gain. He later scrambled for nine yards and a first down, but took a tremendous hit. A few plays later, he showed good poise in finding Richard Smith for a 16-yard gain, but rushed a throw in the face of pressure and overthrew an open Chris Coyle. His final play of the drive was a third down conversion to Coyle, who showed off some nice spin moves.
