ASU's Huge Upset Over #6 Oregon

ASU's Huge Upset Over #6 Oregon

What every football team everywhere needs to know, never count the Sun Devils out


The Sun Devils had a season-defining moment, and one of the biggest highlights for this season of NCAA football, after beating the #6 Oregon Ducks in Tempe this last Saturday. In a game where the Sun Devils were ruled out of any game-day predictions, only had about a 13% chance of winning the game, and where analysts said that Jayden Daniels had to have a near-perfect game, ASU pulled out an exciting win at home.

The Sun Devil defense came to play that keeping the usual stellar Oregon offense to only 7 points by the half, and having two interceptions in the fourth quarter resulting in two scoring drives to keep the Sun Devils ahead to secure the victory.

Jayden Daniels had a near-perfect game as well, throwing some beautiful deep passes to Brandon Aiyuk and Frank Dardy for some highlight-reel worthy touchdowns that night. It was clear to me that in some cases ASU's offensive line was improving. Taking on a top defensive line like Oregon is not a small task, but they were able to get some lanes open for running back, Eno Benjamin, to break through and get some good runs in the second half.

It's never an ASU football game without some nail-biting though. We saw Oregon put up 21 points just in the fourth quarter alone trying to stage a comeback and finally playing like the Oregon Ducks that we've seen all season, but that would prove to not be enough as those two interceptions seemed to be the difference that night.

Some good football was played that night and by some good teams, this time the underdog taking over. As fans, we all should be glad the Sun Devils showed up for a remarkable victory that they should be really proud of, and after that win, they should be bowl eligible so we can continue our support through the winter season.

If the Sun Devils continue to play like this, then there's no telling where we might see them at in the next few seasons to come.

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
