He said-She said. Late night hijinx.

This one was a nail biter, which started of rather slowly. Quizz
was Quizz though and ran for 133 big yards and added another 55 yards through
the air while brother James added 102 receiving yards to the
mix. Yep, that's right, the Rodgers' brothers combined for 78% of the Beavers
offense against the Sun Devils. To say that it was quite a night for Quon and
Quizz would be an understatement.

And while the Rodgers' were doing their thing, Shane Morales and Sammie
Stroughter continued to do theirs. Morales again showed why he is the Beavers
'go to' receiver as he seems to have glue on his hands, while Stroughter made
some clutch catches as well.

The offensive line had a good night, although I wouldn't call it their best
performance of the year. They only allowed one sack, but the quarterbacks had
a lot of pressure and Lyle Moevao and Sean Canfield took some
tough hits…one that knocked Moevao out of the game. It was great to see
Tavita Thompson back in the lineup, and I only saw a few times where
he looked a bit rusty.

My game ball goes to Canfield though. After not seeing significant playing time
in a PAC 10 game in nearly a year, Canfield showed a great deal of poise in
coming in for the injured Moevao, especially given that he doesn't practice
with the first team and it is a major adjustment for everyone when a new quarterback
steps in. After one interception, Canfield settled into his role and finished
the night 19-28 for 218 yards and two touchdowns. It was great to see him back
in action and we now know that the Beavers have two good options at quarterback.
