Arizona St. beats Navy 62-28 in Fight Hunger Bowl
ARIZONA ST 62, NAVY 28

By JOSH DUBOW
AP Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Taylor Kelly, Marion Grice and the rest of
the Arizona State offense put an emphatic finish on coach Todd
Graham's successful first season with the Sun Devils.



Kelly threw four touchdown passes and ran for a fifth score to
lead Arizona State to its first bowl win in seven years, a 62-28
victory over Navy in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Saturday.



Offensive MVP Marion Grice ran for 159 yards and two touchdowns
for the Sun Devils (8-5), who used their fast-paced spread
offense to score touchdowns on their first nine possessions.



"Our guys came to play today and dominated," Graham said. "I'm
proud of them."



The Sun Devils won their most games since 2007 and won a bowl
for the first time since the 2005 Insight Bowl against Rutgers.
They also capped their season by beating rival Arizona and
winning a bowl, a feat they had accomplished just once in the
past 33 seasons.



"This win means a lot - 1978 is a long time," said Rashad Ross,
who caught three touchdown passes. "I'm just glad to be on this
team, the team that finally did it: Beat U of A and then go on
and win a bowl game."



The Midshipmen (8-5) have lost five of their last six bowl
games. Among the few highlights for Navy were Keenan Reynolds'
3-yard TD pass to Matt Aiken in the first half and a 95-yard
kickoff return for a score by Gee Gee Greene in the third
quarter.



Rashad Ross, who grew up in nearby Vallejo, started and ended
the first-half outburst with touchdown receptions. His 16-yard
catch from Kelly capped a 75-yard game-opening drive and he got
behind the Navy defense for a 52-yard score in the final minute
of the half to make it 34-7. Ross then caught a 50-yard TD pass
on Arizona State's first drive of the second half to make it
41-7.



Grice, playing with a heavy heart after his brother was murdered
last week in Houston, scored on a 10-yard run in the first
quarter and a 39-yarder in the third. He had 19 touchdowns this
season, with 11 coming on the ground.



"We opened our arms out for Marion," Kelly said. "We're all with
him. He's in our prayers and our family. He's having a hard time
in the locker room or he'd be out here. He's all into this
program. He wanted to come out and play for his brother and his
family and also our brothers."



Much of the talk leading up to the game was how Arizona State
would handle Navy's unique triple-option offense. It turned out
that the Midshipmen had much more trouble with the Sun Devils'
spread, giving up 648 yards.



"We couldn't stop them," linebacker Brye French said.
"Everything that they would try, they just dominated us in
basically every aspect of the game. It was very frustrating but
you have to give them credit. They had a great game plan. They
executed on everything. They had the deep ball, they had the
run, they had the short pass. They had a great game plan and we
just couldn't stop them."



Arizona State had seven touchdown drives of at least 60 yards in
the first three quarters and had just three third-down plays in
that span as Kelly easily picked apart the defense. The longest
drive took just 2:43 and one of the quickest came at the end of
the half when the Sun Devils went 80 yards in two plays covering
19 seconds after Nick Sloan missed a 33-yard field goal for
Navy.



Kelly finished 17 for 19 for 268 yards, ending the season
completing a school-record 67.1 percent of his passes. He also
rushed for 81 yards, scoring on a 1-yard run that made it 21-0.



The Midshipmen had a few opportunities to keep the game close on
offense in the first half but Greene was unable to hold onto a
pass in the end zone on fourth-and-7 from the 31 in the first
quarter and Reynolds lost 3 yards on a third-and-1 keeper from
the 8 before Sloan's missed field goal.



"We kind of shot ourselves in the foot a couple times when we
couldn't score," Reynolds said. "We could have put ourselves in
the game ... but if you don't score points you don't win the
game, no matter what goes on on the opposite side of the
football."



Sen. John McCain, a former Navy fighter pilot who represents
Arizona in Congress, handled the pregame toss. Instead of using
a coin, the game sponsored by Kraft uses an Oreo, with one side
being a chocolate cookie and the other vanilla.



Before that, Pat Tillman Sr. presented Sun Devils defensive
tackle Will Sutton the Pac-12 defensive player of the year award
named after his son, the former ASU star who died as an Army
ranger in Afghanistan.



Sutton had 2 1/2 sacks to win defensive player of the game as
the Sun Devils kept Navy grounded until the reserves took over
on defense in the fourth quarter.



"I hope we never play that triple option again," Sutton said.
"We handled it real well. We've been practicing about a month
for this game. In due time, we were going to get it down. We did
and we came and had a good game."
