Kelly hits De'Marieya Nelson on a 22 yard pass for the touchdown! 7-0 Sun Devils lead. 3:51 remaining in the 1st quarter— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) September 6, 2013
The first score of the year after the blocked field goal by Robert Nelson. It will be interesting to see how De'Marieya Nelson and Chris Coyle split time going forward.
Sutton down, trainers on the field. #ASU— State Press Sports (@statepresssport) September 6, 2013
The air went out of the stadium when this happened. No one was sure who was down and when everyone saw the dreadlocks, panicked ensued. Luckily Sutton got up under his own power and walked off the field.

The #ChrisCoyleExperience is back…this team is ridiculously deep at WR/TE/3Back this year, and it's showing early— Jason Galvin (@Jason_Galvin) September 6, 2013

The first ever ejection for "targeting" in the history on SDS belongs to Sac State's Nick Crouch... there should be a plaque or something— House of Sparky (@HouseOfSparky) September 6, 2013

And EU-cantakeittothe-BANK as ASU up 52-0 after score by Michael Eubank.— Sun Devil Football (@FootballASU) September 6, 2013
