ASU wide receiver N’Keal Harry had only touched the ball four times.

He had 15 receiving yards.

But when No. 10 Washington punted the ball inside the five-yard line with about seven minutes left in the game, he was there.

Harry returned the ball 42 yards to set up ASU’s first touchdown since the team scored three minutes into the first quarter.

Quarterback Manny Wilkins, who was 13-for-23 with 75 passing yards entering the drive, marched the Sun Devils down the field.

A screen pass to wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk resulted in a 20 yard gain and Wilkins and running back Eno Benjamin both had six-yard runs.

After Benjamin was stuffed at the goal line, Wilkins took care of business.

He dove for a score to cut the deficit to 27-20.

ASU trailed by just one possession with 2:54 remaining in the game.
