Sun Devils Take Match One at NAU Tournament — ASU Volleyball

Sun Devils Take Match One at NAU Tournament — ASU Volleyball”

Playing well against an FCS program was great, but Penny had his eyes on the second game of the season: At Arizona State.

Saturday's game is one of two back-to-back meetings with a Pacific 12 Conference team.

AZTECS AND TURNOVERS: San Diego State has had a knack for forcing turnovers under Long, ranking second nationally in 2015 and fifth last season.

The Aztecs defense was able to get to Wilkins in the second half, and finished the game with seven sacks after not recording any in the first two quarters. It's just go to the next game and just go play ball and that's what we're here to do. "We beat ourselves", Graham said. "Field position was huge for us and I think that was a really big factor". Our guys showed heart, but it didn't count on the score board.

Arizona State is a 3.5-point favorite in the matchup according to OddsShark, and ESPN's FPI gives the Sun Devils a 66 percent win probability. Penny ran for 197 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 38-17 win over UC Davis last week, helping the Aztecs churn up 276 yards on the ground. Kalen Ballage managed pretty well without his running mate, scoring two touchdowns while rushing for 79 yards.

In the midst of a 6-1 scoring run that was followed by two more 3-0 runs later in the set, Peterson was able to find Okaro, Hughes, and junior Peyton Grahovac at will, as the spearheaded attack of the three accumulated 23/30 of the Sun Devil kills at that point in the match. The two-point conversion pass failed. San Diego State defeated Arizona State 30-20.

"It's just about going out there and executing the game plan, and that's not what we did tonight", Wilkins said.

"Well, they're a spread football team, they've got great skill at wide receiver, they've got great skill at running back and they have an outstanding quarterback", he said.

WILKINS' RETURN: Arizona State quarterback Manny Wilkins had a strong return from an injury-plagued 2016 season.

New Mexico State rolled up 549 yards of total offense against Arizona State, including 398 yards passing by Tyler Rogers and 151 yards on 30 carries as a team. Graham's hot seat might be warming up.
