What to Know
The Arizona State Sun Devils’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on the UNLV Rebels at 10:30 p.m. ET Sept. 11 at Sun Devil Stadium, Frank Kush Field. The Sun Devils should still be feeling good after a big victory, while UNLV will be looking to regain their footing.
When you finish with 214 more yards than your opponent like ASU did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They put the hurt on the Southern Utah Thunderbirds with a sharp 41-14 win. With ASU ahead 28-7 at the half, the game was all but over already. RB Rachaad White and RB DeaMonte Trayanum were among the main playmakers for ASU as the former punched in two rushing touchdowns and the latter punched in two rushing touchdowns.
ASU’s defense was a presence as well, as it collected three interceptions and one fumble. LB Darien Butler picked up that interception and then proceeded to rub salt in the wound by taking it back the other way for a touchdown.
Meanwhile, the Rebels fought the good fight in their overtime contest against the Eastern Washington Eagles last Thursday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 35-33. A silver lining for UNLV was the play of RB Charles Williams, who rushed for two TDs and 172 yards on 27 carries.
Special teams collected 13 points for UNLV. P Daniel Gutierrez delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.
UNLV’s loss took them down to 0-1 while Arizona State’s victory pulled them up to 1-0. We’ll see if UNLV can steal ASU’s luck or if ASU records another victory instead.
