2021 Sun Devil Bowl Guide

13 ARIZONA STATE 2021 BOWL GUIDE FOOTBALL LAS VEGAS BOWL | DEC. 30, 2021 GAME 4 9.25.21 TEMPE — To bury the Buffaloes, all the Sun Devils needed to do was reach into their big bag of tricks and summon a right-handed strike from … Ricky Pearsall, the wide receiver who had attempted just two career passes entering the game. Up 21-10 in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, Jayden Daniels flicked a pass just behind the line of scrimmage to Pearsall, who baited the defense, then relayed it back across field to Rachaad White, who used an escort of blockers to scamper 30 yards for a touchdown. The pesky Buffaloes had made it as close as 14-10, but the Daniels-Pearsall-White connection was the exclamation point that stamped a 35-13 win against Colorado in the Pac-12 opener Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium. Daniels was terrific all night, completing 18-of-25 passes for 236 yards while running for 75 yards and two scores. In the first quarter, Daniels eclipsed 5,000 total yards in his Sun Devil career. The Sun Devil defense aced a tough test against the Buffalo rushing attack, led by Jarek Broussard, last season’s Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year. Broussard touted the rock 12 times for 35 yards, totaling just three yards in the first half. The Buffaloes converted on just five of 15 third down attempts, as they were held to 250 total yards of offense. ASU 35, COLORADO 13 SUN DEVI L STADIUM • TEMPE , ARIZ. VS
