Arizona State played in Texas for the fourth time in the Todd Graham era, and the Sun Devils narrowly escaped with a 32-28 victory over the University of Texas-San Antonio. ASU needed a late rally to overcome a 16-point deficit and notch its largest comeback win on the road since 2002.
Kerry Crowley and Chris Karpman break down the game, analyze why ASU dug itself into a hole early in the contest, and what adjustments the Sun Devils made to enable the team’s late success.
Kerry and Chris start the episode with a discussion of ASU’s special teams performance in light of kicker Zane Gonzalez’s outstanding performance and then discuss how Manny Wilkins performed in his first start on the road.
The Sun Devil Source Report hosts analyze how UTSA’s scheme impacted Wilkins’ decision-making, and why the Roadrunners posed a tougher test for the young quarterback than Texas Tech. Before moving onto the defensive side of the ball, Kerry and Chris analyze freshman receiver N’Keal Harry’s early success and what his NFL prospects look like.
After talking Harry, Kerry and Chris highlight the two key defensive adjustments ASU made in the second half that stopped the Roadrunners in their tracks and allowed ASU to complete a comeback victory.
