Arizona State wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has been fantastic for the Sun Devils in the return game.

And against the Oregon State Beavers in Corvallis on Saturday, Aiyuk took one back 63 yards to tie the game at 21-21 with four minutes to go in the first half.

What made the score even more imperative is what happened just a few minutes prior, as the punt was actually Oregon State’s second of the drive.

The Sun Devils had forced a three-and-out and were set up in prime field position after returning the punt to around the Beavers’ 40-yard line.

However, in an attempt to block the punt deep inside Oregon State territory, ASU committed a penalty that resulted in an automatic first down.

Luckily for the Sun Devils, the foul didn’t come back to bite them, as Arizona State was still able to get in the endzone thanks to Aiyuk’s 63-yard punt return touchdown.

But ASU’s luck would run out with 1:40 left in the fourth quarter after the Sun Devils failed to convert on what would’ve been a go-ahead two-point conversion in the 35-34 loss.
