Oregon State Beavers
Arizona State Sun Devils
It was torture for Oregon State Beavers fans pre-game and especially in the first half. Cody Vaz, starting in place of Sean Mannion, fumbles the ball on the opening drive. Arizona State Sun Devils recover the ball in the end zone, putting them up 7-0. The half continued to go incredibly bad for OSU, when the Sun Devils blocked a punt and sent the ball through the back of the end zone, granting ASU 2 points and the ball back. Aside from a touchdown pass to Markus Wheaton, who caught the ball midfield and juked defenders taking it an extra 20 yards for the score, the Beavers could not get much of an offensive game going. The Sun Devils defensive line was applying pressure and bashing through Beavers offensive line. Vaz was sacked a total of six times, having trouble putting the ball in the air because of the abusive pass rush, led by ASU’s star defensive lineman, Will Sutton.

The ups and downs of the 2012 season continued as Arizona State traveled to Corvallis this weekend and fell 36-26 to Oregon State. The game started much like last week’s affair against UCLA with ASU coming out on fire. The defense was rolling in the first quarter and the offense was moving the football. But things would settle and the Beavers proved they were the sharper team...

Generally speaking, a reliable presence under center is one of the most vital components of an offense in college football -- and it's rare that a team succeeds without one.
