Devils stick a fork in Huskies

It was a wet and windy night at Husky Stadium as the 14th ranked Sun Devils rolled into town. The Huskies switched up a couple key pieces on offense with Freshman Troy Williams starting at Quarterback and Linebacker Shaq Thompson staring at Running Back. The two defenses traded punches for most of the game but the Sun Devils had more fire power and finally pulled away to a 24-10 victory. The hard winds that peaked at about 60 mph gusts at times played havoc with the kicking game for both teams and kept a lot of the offensive plays on the ground as well.
