  OCT 11 PAC-12 DEFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: Tyler Johnson, Gr., DE, Arizona State (Temecula, CA),...Was a disruptive force, putting together his best performance of the season.

  Arizona State's 28-10 win over Stanford marked the Sun Devils' fifth straight win by double digits in a Pac-12 game. The last ASU team with that type of streak was the one Jake Plummer led to the Rose Bowl after the 1996 season. With wins by margins of 63, 13, 22, 19 and 18, ASU is outscoring Pac-12 opponents by an average of 27 points dating to the 70-7 win over Arizona last season. - AP College Football

  OCT 10 WALTER CAMP NATIONAL DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: TYLER JOHNSON, ARIZONA STATE, Graduate Student, Defensive Line, Gilbert, AZ/Highland,...Tyler Johnson recorded five tackles, including two for losses, and two quarterback sacks as 22nd-ranked Arizona State defeated Stanford, 28-10. Johnson also forced a fumble as the Sun Devil defense allowed just 13 rushing yards in the contest.

  10/08/21 - Jack JonesrSr/2022, Arizona State, 5-09, 175 (DS#27 CB) + More +

  Jack Jones stepped in front of the receiver, caught the ball and held it out with one hand. Just before he hit the ground, the Arizona State defensive back caught a glimpse of Deandre Pierce and tossed it to his teammate for a spectacular touchdown. The Sun Devils' run game was just as impressive. Pierce scored a 27-yard touchdown on a lateral off Jones' interception and No. 22 Arizona State rode its explosive run game to a 28-10 win over Stanford on Friday night. The Sun Devils (5-1, 3-0 Pac-12) exploited one of the nation's worst run defenses, racking up 255 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.

Jayden Daniels provided the balance, throwing for 175 yards and running for 76 more, including a 51-yard touchdown. Their defense gave up some big plays in the passing game, but kept the Cardinal out of the end zone in the second half and created three turnovers - none more exciting than the interception and lateral. "When I got it, I knew it was me and the receiver on an island," Jones said. "I turned around a 'Dre was there. Luckily he caught the ball." Stanford (3-3, 2-2) had no answer for Arizona State's run game and became one dimensional offensively after falling behind, limited to 9 yards rushing on 20 carries. Tanner McKee threw for 356 yards and a touchdown, but had his first three interceptions of the season, including Pierce's back-breaking TD in the third quarter. - Arizona State/AP College Football

  OCT 4 PAC-12 OFFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: LaDarius Henderson, Jr., LG, Arizona State (Waxahachie, TX),...Provided a physical presence at the line of scrimmage in the victory over #20 UCLA. Henderson and the offensive line unit paved the way for an extremely balanced offensive attack that produced 42 points and 458 total yards (286 passing & 172 rushing)...Graded out at 84%, including two pancakes and one knockdown. He did not allow a single quarterback pressure and still has only allowed one all season...Was effective as a pull blocker on run plays and also showed his athleticism when getting out to block on Ricky Pearsall's 58-yard touchdown on a screen pass...3rd time an Arizona State player has won this award since its inception in 2019. Dohnovan West won it in December 2020 and Cohl Cabral in September 2019. Also nominated: Walter Rouse, LT, Stanford; Brandon Kipper, OL, Oregon State; Andrew Vorhees, OL, USC; Liam Ryan, OT, Washington State. - Pac-12 Football

  OCT 4 PAC-12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jayden Daniels, Jr., QB, Arizona State (San Bernardino, CA),...Led the Sun Devils to a 42-23 win over #20 UCLA, the second-largest margin of victory against an AP Top 25 team on the road in program history. Daniels did it with both his arm and legs, but excelled in the passing game...Threw for 286 yards on an efficient 13-for-18 passing, throwing for a pair of touchdowns. It was his 9th game with 2+ scores through the air. It is his 12th career performance accounting for 2 or more touchdowns and the 9th time he eclipsed 250 yards through the air...Accounted for 331 yards of offense, going over the 300-yard mark for the 8th time. He averaged 22 yards/completion, which set a new career high. He added 45 yards on the ground on only 6 carries.

Created explosive plays with his accuracy and arm strength, completing 4 passes of over 40 yards. As a result, he was PFF's 21st highest graded player overall in FBS for the week, grading out at 87.6. The rating was 12th among all quarterbacks and was the best in the Pac-12 this week. His 15.1 yards per attempt were 2nd among FBS quarterbacks this week. Additionally, he had the 8th-highest NFL QBR in the FBS according to PFF...2nd time he has won the award and it is the first time an Arizona State player has won it since Daniels did in November 2019 as a freshman...Daniels actually won both the Offensive Player and Freshman of the Week that week...Also nominated for offense: Tanner McKee, QB, Stanford; B.J. Baylor, RB, Oregon State; Calvin Jackson Jr., WR, Washington State; Greg Dulcich, TE, UCLA; Keaontay Ingram, RB, USC. - Pac-12 Football

  Jayden Daniels passed for 286 yards and threw two touchdown passes to Ricky Pearsall, and Arizona State used big plays to defeat No. 20 UCLA 42-23 Saturday night. The Sun Devils (4-1, 2-0 Pac-12) were forced to punt on their first drive before scoring on their next five to take control of the game and likely the Pac-12's South Division. The Bruins fall to 3-2, 1-1. Rachaad White rushed for two TDs, including a 49-yard score early in the third quarter to extend Arizona State's lead to 32-23.

The Sun Devils led by one at halftime before the senior spun out of an attempted tackle by Qwuantrezz Knight, changed direction and then went up the left sideline before avoiding a diving Alex Johnson at the 5 and then lunging over the pylon. The Sun Devils were then successful on the 2-point conversion on DeaMonte Trayanum's run. Daniels completed 13 of 18 passes, with four going for 47 or more yards. Two of them were touchdowns to Pearsall in the second quarter - a 65-yard yard screen that tied it at 14 followed by a 54-yard reception where the junior beat Elisha Guidry in coverage to give Arizona State a 24-20 lead. Pearsall finished with 132 yards on four catches. - Arizona State/AP College Football

  09/26/21 - Rachaad WhiterSr/2022, Arizona State, 6-1, 210 (DS#11 RB) + More +

  Rachaad White said there were times that Colorado's defense was loading the line of scrimmage on Saturday night, daring Arizona State to beat them with throws downfield. Jayden Daniels and the Sun Devils were happy to oblige. Daniels threw for 236 yards and ran for two touchdowns, White added rushing and receiving touchdowns, and Arizona State beat Colorado 35-13 in the Pac-12 opener for both teams. "It was great the passing game got going," White said. "Everyone got in rhythm. If they want to stack the box, then we trust the receivers. We did some key things this week to fix things up and Jayden led that group." Arizona State (3-1, 1-0 Pac-12) bounced back from last week's loss to BYU that caused the program to drop out of the AP Top 25. The Sun Devils never trailed, controlling the flow of the game with steady offense and solid defense.

They sealed the game early in the fourth quarter when Daniels threw a lateral across the field to Ricky Pearsall, who then fired a return forward pass across the field to White, who ran 30 yards for the touchdown and a 28-10 lead. Daniels capped Arizona State's scoring with a 15-yard touchdown run. He completed 18 of 25 passes (72%) and also ran for a team-high 75 yards. It was a cleaner game for the Sun Devils, who were called for 16 penalties in the BYU loss. Arizona State outgained Colorado 436 yards to 250. "Hopefully, we learned a lesson," Sun Devils coach Herm Edwards said. "We got better this week." Colorado (1-3, 0-1) made it close for a few minutes, cutting the deficit to 14-10 early in the third quarter by scoring its first touchdown in more than nine quarters. Alex Fontenot powered through for a 1-yard score on third down. - Arizona State/AP College Football

  Arizona State's first half was a stinker and the second half was stellar. In the aftermath of a surprisingly competitive 37-10 victory over UNLV on Saturday night, the 23rd-ranked Sun Devils chose to focus on the latter. "Eventually, our guys came together," Arizona State coach Herm Edwards said. "In the third quarter, that's when we got going." Quarterback Jayden Daniels ran for a career-high 122 yards and Rachaad White added two rushing touchdowns. Arizona State's defense held UNLV to just 19 total yards in the second half and the Sun Devils were dominant with a 23-0 advantage after the break. White had 90 yards on the ground and scored a crucial 9-yard touchdown late in the third quarter to give Arizona State a 21-10 lead. He added a 1-yard touchdown run early in the fourth.

Daniels was 20 of 29 passing for 175 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The second touchdown was a 33-yarder to LV Bunkley-Shelton that put the Sun Devils (2-0) up 34-10 and capped a stretch of three touchdowns in less than seven minutes, turning a tight game into a comfortable margin. "I think we did a good job in the end," Arizona State cornerback Chase Lucas said. "But we've just got to start fresher, start better." UNLV hadn't won a football game since 2019 and came into the game a 33.5-point underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, but didn't look overmatched for a big chunk of the night. Arizona State had to work for its 14-10 halftime lead. - Arizona State/AP College Football

  SEPT 6 PAC-12 DEFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: D.J. Davidson, Gr., NT, Arizona State (Mesa, AZ),...Stuffed the stat sheet during a dominant season debut, helping the Sun Devils defeat Southern Utah 41-14. Extremely productive effort from his nose tackle spot, collecting six tackles, two tackles for loss, and a fumble recovery...A key reason why Arizona State held Southern Utah under 80 yards rushing and only 3.0 yards/rush. Drew the attention of the opposing blocking scheme, but still manage to put up numbers and draw a holding penalty...Tied for the second-most tackles for loss in the conference (2.0) and also tied for the second-most tackles among defensive lineman (6.0) in week one. One of only seven players in the conference to recover a fumble...4th Arizona State player to win this award since it began in 2019 and the first since Tyler Johnson won in December 2020. Also nominated: Otito Ogbonnia, DL, UCLA; Drake Jackson, OLB, USC; Brandon Dorlus, DT, Oregon; Trevon Mason, DT, Arizona; Jalen Sami, NT, Colorado. - Pac-12 Football

  Arizona State running backs DeaMonte Trayanum and Rachaad White dominated on the ground Thursday in the Sun Devils' 41-14 victory over Southern Utah. Trayanum and White combined for four rushing touchdowns and 110 yards on just 13 carries. Following a Southern Utah turnover on the opening drive, Trayanum took the first offensive play of the season for three yards to the end zone. The very next possession was White's turn as he capped off a 76-yard drive with a nifty 26-yard touchdown run.

Southern Utah scored on the next possession cutting the Sun Devils' lead to only six points. White was then the recipient of yet another touchdown as he put an exclamation point on the third successful drive in four possessions with a 1-yard touchdown. Whether it was White or Trayanum did not seem to matter as Southern Utah did not have an answer. Trayanum broke the game open on the Sun Devils' fifth offensive possession, scoring the team's fourth rushing touchdown in just nine attempts. - ArizonaSports.com

  Arizona State quarterback Jayden Daniels exited Thursday's game against Southern Utah with what the broadcast confirmed as cramps. The Sun Devils led 34-7 with 4:51 remaining in the third quarter when Jayden Daniels fell to the ground. Daniels was 10-of-12 for 132 yards passing before exiting the game. He also added six carries for 40 yards on the ground. He returned to the sideline and appeared to be ok with his helmet on his head but did not return in the game as the Sun Devils held a 27-point lead when he went to the locker room. Daniels was replaced by backup quarterback and redshirt sophomore Trenton Bourguet. Bourguet has attempted two passes in his career prior to Thursday's game, completing one for 24 yards. Bourguet finished by completing 3 of 5 passes for 32 yards. - ArizonaSports.com

  Arizona State's defense created turnovers, the offense churned out touchdowns on the ground. Everything else? Still needs some work. Darien Butler had two interceptions and No. 25 Arizona State used its punishing run game to overcome some sloppy moments in a season-opening 41-14 win over Southern Utah on Thursday night. "That's bad football. Bad. I'm a bad coach," Arizona State coach Herm Edwards said. "That's bad football and we've got to fix that. If we're going to win games, games we want to try to win, you can't do that."

The Sun Devils were a bit rusty to start a season of high expectations, committing numerous miscues on special teams and 13 penalties for 135 yards. Arizona State still proved to be too much for the FCS Thunderbirds (0-2), forcing four turnovers and running for six touchdowns to win its 22nd straight home opener. Rachaad White and DeaMonte Trayanum each ran for two scores. "I told them we've got to clean this up," said Arizona State quarterback Jayden Daniels, who threw for 132 yards before leaving in the third quarter with leg cramps. "We're a better team than Southern Utah, but at the end of the day if we play Washington or USC, those things can hurt us." - AP College Football/Utah Football

  Arizona State's season opener is three weeks away but the Sun Devils have already suffered a major setback with senior defensive tackle Jermayne Lole sidelined with a triceps injury that will require surgery and is likely season ending. After today's practice, ASU coach Herm Edwards confirmed the injury which occurred during Monday's practice. Lole has been at practice as a spectator the last two days with his right arm in a sling. "It doesn't look good," the coach said. The 6-foot-2, 305-pounder would have been a four-year starter, having earned a spot in 2018 as a true freshman. He was an All-Pac 12 honorable mention last season with 24 total tackles including five for a loss and 1.5 sacks and the four-game 2020 season. In his career, Lole had registered 147 tackles in 32 games. Much was expected of Lole this season. He was a first-team All-preseason Pac-12 pick by the media. - Arizona Republic
