TEMPE, Ariz — The Arizona State Sun Devils put together their most complete first half of football offensively against Washington State, scoring most points in a first half this season with 24 after Dario Longhetto hit a 51-yard field goal as time expired.
The Sun Devils scored on four of their five offensive possessions, with the one a missed field goal attempt. Coming off a loss last week against Washington last week, the offensive could not find rhythm, now the offense is singing.
The Sun Devils defense, coming off an all-time performance at Washington, has struggled to contain Cougars’ quarterback Cameron Ward. The Sun Devils’ defense registered a single sack, courtesy of Clayton Smith, and a pair of tackles for loss.
