Facing a 17-7 halftime deficit, the Arizona State Sun Devils kicked things into gear in the fourth quarter to beat the Washington Huskies 35-30 in Seattle.

ASU was led to victory on a game-winning drive orchestrated by Rachaad White.

With 2:30 remaining in the game, the senior running back was able to convert a 4th-and-3 near midfield to keep the drive alive.

The Sun Devils continued to move down the field, killing precious clock in the process.

ASU quarterback Jayden Daniels used his legs to get the offense in the red zone, then it was White who finished the job.

Finding the end zone for the second time of the game, White’s 10-yard touchdown gave ASU a 28-24 lead with 1:11 remaining.

On the Huskies’ ensuing drive, the Arizona State defense sealed the victory.

On 4th-and-1, Sun Devils linebacker Merlin Robertson intercepted Washington quarterback Dylan Morris and took it back to the house for the pick-six.

The Huskies went on to score a touchdown with :03 left and recovered the ensuing onside kick.

However, Washington’s pass on the final play of the game was batted down at midfield.

Washington had gone 84 consecutive games without allowing 35 points, which was the longest streak in the nation.
