TEMPE, Ariz. -- On his weekly radio show Monday, Arizona State coach Todd Graham casually mentioned that he had nearly decided to eliminate long shot Taylor Kelly from the team's three-man quarterback competition before the start of fall camp to avoid repping three players at the position. He's certainly glad he didn't.
Through four games as ASU's starter, Kelly has excelled with the efficiency that initially won him the job over Mike Bercovici and Michael Eubank. With a 182.20 passer rating and a 72.53 completion percentage (66 of 91), Kelly currently ranks ninth nationally and first in the Pac-12 in efficiency.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State coach Todd Graham cautioned ahead of Saturday's matchup with Utah that the home tilt would be no cakewalk.

2013 West Mesquite (Tex.) cornerback William Earley committed to ASU during his visit.
Arizona State’s adages such as High Octane and Left Lane-Hammer Down are anything but tranquil sayings. Nonetheless, while they convey the desire for a fast paced and passionate style of play, Sun Devil Head Coach Todd Graham doesn’t want his players, or coaches for that matter, to exhibit any emotional highs or lows before or after a game.
