Despite an excellent three quarters, ASU let the road game get away from them in the final frame in Corvallis. The Oregon St. Beavers scored 16 unanswered points to defeat the Sun Devils 37-23 in NCAA 13's version of Reser Stadium.
The Beaver passing attack, led by Cody Vaz, overwhelmed the porous ASU secondary, slicing up the defense for 375 passing yards.
Lets break down the key stats from this dreadful simulation which in no way reflects reality or what will actually happen in Corvallis tonight (praise be to Sparky).
|5 of 14||3rd Down Conv||11 of 17|
|0 of 1||4th Down Conv||1 of 1|
|4 - 3 - 1||Red Zone - TD - FG||6 - 4 - 0|
|84||Kick Return Yards||98|
|8 - 62||Penalties - Yards||5 - 40|
Despite the ASU defense forcing four turnovers, the offense was unable to get anything going in the adverse conditions of a road game against the #11 team in the nation.
D.J. Foster struggled, taking 16 carries and only picking up 55 yards on the ground. Jamal Miles was the offensive star for the Devils, catching seven passes for 144 yards. Chris Young made ten tackles, including three for loss.
Lets hope for a better result tonight, that's all I can say.
Editor's note: The NCAA 13 simulation is just for fun.
