After ASU went three-and-out on its first drive, the Sun Devils drove down the field on their next drive and ran the Sparky Formation in the red zone.

RB Cameron Skattebo lined up at QB and ended up scoring from 13 yards out on the second play in the formation to put ASU up 7-0.

Oklahoma State answered with a long drive of its own, capped off by a two-yard TD by RB Ollie Gordon to tie the game at seven with 11:58 remaining in the second quarter.

Rashada then responded with a long TD on a 65-yard bomb to Elijhah Badger to give the Sun Devils the lead once again.

Did the Sun Devils kick an extra point next? Nope. They went back to the Sparky Formation on a two-point conversion to put them up 15-7.

Gunnar Gundy came it at QB next and led a drive down the field that resulted in a 52-yard field goal to make it 15-10 ASU.

There was no more scoring for the rest of the half.

ASU OL Depth Hurt

Starting right tackle Emit Bohle was carted off the field with a leg injury early in the first quarter. Left tackle Isaia Glass and back-up right guard Cade Briggs were already not dressed for the game.

Key Stats

ASU DL B.J. Green has two sacks after ASU had 0 as a team in Week One.
