Devils hang on, take Mizzou in OT 37-30...
Brock Osweiler had a stellar game throwing for 3 TD's and adding another TD on the ground!

It was Brock Osweiler and Aaron Pflugrad inflicting most of the damage for the second week in a row as ASU's offense led the way to a wild and wooly 37-30 OT victory. Osweiler was huge for the Devils hitting 24 of 32 passes for 353 yards and three TD's while running for another. Eight of those passes went to Pflugrad who added two more TD catches this week to go along with his game high 180 yards receiving. Jamal Miles also caught two TD passes and added a 35 yd TD pass to Pflugrad as well.

The Sun Devils defense took a step back this week, giving up 30 points and 501 yards to a Missouri team that only managed 17 points last week against Miami(Ohio). LB Colin Parker was one of the few bright spots on defense posting a game high 11 tackles while Vontaze Burfict added his 4th sack of the season.

With the game tied at 30 heading into the OT, ASU went first on offense and picked up a key first down on Pflugrad's eighth catch of the night. Soon after, they scored the only points in the overtime session on an 11 yards toss from Osweiler to Miles.

Next weekend, the Sun Devils head to Champaign, IL to take on the Fighting Illini at 4 pm (AZ time).
