TEMPE, Ariz. -- FOX Sports NEXT caught up with Arizona State senior linebacker Brandon Magee after practice on Wednesday to discuss bouncing back from the Sun Devils' loss at Missouri, Magee's personal performance and role as a leader, the team's upcoming opponent, and more.

Kelly ready to ‘bounce back’

Following the first loss of the season for Arizona State, many came away impressed with how the team continued to fight and rally in the second half. The second half charge on offense was led by starting quarterback Taylor Kelly, who was able to shake off a slow start and come close to leading the Sun Devils to an improbable comeback.

DevilsDigest TV: Kevin Ozier

There is no question that the ASU wide receivers had an especially rough outing in the 24-20 loss to Missouri. One of the members of that group, Kevin Ozier, says that the lessons learned from that contest can certainly help the Sun Devils bounce back as they prepare for the Utah game and the beginning of Pac-12 play.

Young enjoying a quick start to the season

On a defense that has already showcased several playmakers this year, one of the pleasant surprises of that group has been Junior College transfer Chris Young. Coming into fall camp as a safety, it took Chris Young some time to convert to the “spur” hybrid linebacker position with the Sun Devils. Now that he has settled in at the position the results are speaking for themselves.

Connelly, O-Line ‘ready to take next step'

One of the areas of concern for the Sun Devils entering the year was their offensive line. With only two returning starters on this group, many believed that the offensive line would struggle to keep up with the fast pace of the Arizona State offense. Nonetheless, three games into the season, Offensive Line Coach Bob Connelly and his players are developing at a faster pace than anyone expected.

Defensive Coordinator Paul Randolph talked with Devils Digest about the keys to stopping the Utah’s offense, as well as the performance of some of his players this far in the season.
