TEMPE, Ariz. -- In case anyone had forgotten after Arizona State's first eight games that Taylor Kelly was still a first-year quarterback, the sophomore offered a reminder against Oregon State last week.
Kelly had his worst game as a starter in the loss just a week after what coach Todd Graham called Kelly's best game. Still, confidence remains high in Kelly as the Sun Devils try to keep their Pac-12 South hopes alive this week at USC.
"Everybody gets knocked on their butt every once in a while," ASU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Norvell said. "It's about how we respond, and he's come out and had a great week of practice."
While there was some external chatter that perhaps the Sun Devils should turn to redshirt freshman Michael Eubank during their 36-26 loss to the Beavers, it has been made clear this week that Kelly is still very much the guy. Eubank will still get his chances in specific situations, but Kelly is unequivocally the starter.
