The defense was effective for the second week in a row, as was dominant as the Sun Devils grabbed four interceptions with linebacker Jay Jay Wilson taking one to the house to close the door on Utah.
Wilson’s interception, along with J’Marcus Rhodes, Christian Sam and Chase Lucas’ picks can be seen below.
It was third-and-eight, deep in their own territory with only about eight minutes left in the game. Sophomore Quarterback Tyler Huntley was looking for his sophomore running back Zack Moss, but behind him in coverage was Wilson who jumped the route, which led to the pick and the touchdown, closing the door for Utah to come back.
This win proved as a burst of confidence for the Sun Devils, who improved to 4-3 overall and 3-1 in conference play after starting the season 1-2.
