  • Redshirt sophomore defensive lineman Jalen Bates was out of a green non-contact jersey for the first time since sustaining an injury during warmups at Washington last season.

11-on-11 Rundown

The Sun Devils did one drive of 11-on-11 with the first-team offense and first-team defense squaring off. The drive featured multiple runs by Ballage and was capped off by a nice pass from Wilkins to Harry on the left sideline.
