ASU vs. UNLV
Yesterday Alisha and I invited Justin and Tanya to go to a football game. We figured it would be a blowout game with ASU dominating the entire game. Boy were we ever wrong. From the start of the game ASU did not look great. The first drive they were held to only a field goal. The defense didn't do any better letting the Rebels run against almost at will. Even with all the bad playing ASU managed to stay ahead at the half but only barely. After the half things went from bad to worse as UNLV came back from ten points behind to tie the game with 28 seconds left in the game. At this point ASU had 2 timeouts left so we figured, they can still get some decent yards on a couple passing plays followed by timeouts then kick a winning field goal. To our horror, this did not happen, but instead we got to watch one short gain running play that sent the game into overtime. During overtime ASU held UNLV to a field goal and UNLV, in turn , held ASU to a field goal which they were able to block giving them the win and devastating the crowd in attendance.
Other then the awful game it was a very fun game to go to. College games are always a blast to go to. Hopefully some day we will be able to get some season tickets. We are now looking forward to next year when ASU will meet BYU at home. Hopefully we can get the Hamblins (my in-laws) to come down and go with us to it.
