VIDEO: Todd Graham challenged his defense, and it rose to the occasion

Following the 21-point shellacking against USC, Arizona State head coach Todd Graham said he challenged his defense to perform better. What resulted was four forced turnovers, five sacks and nine tackles for loss.

The Sun Devils held UCLA to -1 yards rushing, the lowest total by a Sun Devils defense since 2013. That, coupled with a better offensive performance in the second half resulted in another home win for ASU. Although the Sun Devils have plenty of question marks and injuries heading into its matchup against Colorado, they do still stand on top of the Pac-12 South with the Buffaloes.
