azcentral sports’ Doug Haller and Greg Moore look back at ASU’s loss to UCLA and ahead to the Sun Devils’ game at Oregon State.

With bowl eligibility at stake, ASU visits Oregon State on Saturday. The Sun Devils (5-5 and 4-3 in the Pac-12) have not won in Corvallis since 2005. Follow along for updates throughout the game, which kicks off at 1 p.m.

Safety dance

At its own 7-yard line, pressure by JoJo Wicker in the end zone forced into Oregon State quarterback Darell Garretson to throw the ball away for an intentional grounding penalty and a safety.

ASU leads 16-0 with just over a minute left in the first quarter.

No N’Keal

Three offensive possessions in for the Sun Devils, N’Keal Harry has still only seen the field as the punt returner on Oregon State’s two punts.

Harry has been standing on the sideline with his helmet on.

ASU extends early lead

The perfect start continues for the Devils. 

After ASU’s defense forced a three-and-out on Oregon State’s first offensive possession, its offense backed that up with an eight-play, 71-yard touchdown drive.

Highlighted by a Manny Wilkins 32-yard scramble to the Oregon State 19, the drive ended with a Wilkins-Curtis Hodges connection for a 1-yard touchdown.

Playing the role of N’Keal Harry, who’s only made an appearance for ASU on the punt return, Hodges made a nice adjustment to haul in Wilkins’ goal-line fade.

Pretty ideal start for ASU.

An easygoing start

Despite an ominous fog settling in over the field in Corvallis, the Sun Devils opened Saturday’s game exactly the way they needed to.

After Wilkins opened the game with a 28-yard pass to Frank Darby (Darby’s first reception since Sept. 30 at Stanford), Demario Richard ran the ball twice for 2 and 16 yards.

Wilkins then unleashed an easy 23-yard touchdown pass down the middle of the field to receiver Kyle Williams to complete the four-play drive.

ASU leads 7-0 early in this one.
