Arizona State routs Washington State 46-7
ARIZONA ST 46, WASHINGTON ST 7

AP College Football Writer

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Quarterbacks Taylor Kelly and Michael Eubank
accounted for six touchdowns Saturday, and Arizona State became
bowl eligible with a 46-7 rout over Washington State that ended
the Sun Devils' four-game losing streak.



Arizona State (6-5, 4-4 Pac-12) had failed in four tries to
become bowl eligible, bogging down against some of the best
teams in the conference.



The Sun Devils finally broke through behind their quarterbacks
and a resurgent defense that turned Washington State's Air Raid
offense into Air Dud.



Kelly threw for four touchdowns and Eubank had one each on the
ground and through the air. Arizona State's defense forced two
turnovers in the first half and Chris Coyle had a pair of
touchdown catches to put the Sun Devils up 32-0 in their final
home game of the season.



Washington State (2-9, 0-8) capped a tumultuous week with a
disappointing performance.



Trying to fight the distraction of star receiver Marquess
Wilson's acrimonious split with the team, the Cougars came out
flat and were run over from the start.



Washington State's defense allowed 561 total yards and its
offense got no support from the running game, which produced 1
yard on 19 carries.



Kelly had struggled as teams closed in on the Sun Devils'
running game, throwing seven interceptions during the four-game
losing streak.



The sophomore overthrew a couple of receivers early against
Washington State, but was at his just-make-it-happen best on
Arizona State's second drive, flipping a short pass that Rashad
Ross turned into a 15-yard touchdown.



Kelly used a hard pump fake to get Washington State's defense to
come in on the next drive, leaving Coyle wide open for an
18-yard touchdown catch. Kelly added a 17-yard TD pass in the
second quarter, though Marion Grice did most of the work, racing
through what seemed like all of Washington State's defense on
his way to the end zone to put the Sun Devils up 25-0.



Eubank got in on the action next, following an interception by
Keelan Johnson with a 29-yard touchdown pass to Coyle in the
second quarter, then opened the third by scoring on a 1-yard
dive.



Kelly added another score late in the third quarter, scrambling
long enough to find Ross for a 31-yard touchdown that put
Arizona State up 46-0.



Kelly threw for 246 yards on 20 of 23 passing, while Eubank was
7 for 9 for 55 yards.



The big day by Arizona State's quarterbacks added to Washington
State's misery in what has been a rough first season under Mike
Leach.



After opening with a pair of wins in their first three
nonconference games, the Cougars struggled once the Pac-12
season started, losing their first seven games.



It got worse last week when Wilson quit the team, saying the
coaches had physically, mentally and verbally abused him.



Leach denied the allegations, just as he did at Texas Tech,
where he was fired in 2009 after being accused of abusing a
player.



The Cougars vowed not to let Wilson's accusations become a
distraction.



They didn't play like it.



Washington State ended its first fruitless drive by bouncing a
snap on a punt, setting up Arizona State for a 21-yard field
goal. The Cougars didn't get much better from there, managing
more punts than first downs (5-4) at one point of the first half
while Jeff Tuel and Connor Halliday each threw interceptions.



The Pac-12's passing leader, Washington State had 240 yards
passing - 137 below its season average.
