Key Offensive Players: Taylor Kelly, QB: The redshirt sophomore out of Eagle, Idaho has had a breakout year in his first season behind center for the Devils. He's 188-288 with 2,335 yards with 21 touchdowns through the air and 9 interceptions.
Marion Grice, RB: One of the top running backs coming out of junior college last off season, the junior has shown to be a dual threat in both the rushing and passing games. Grice has 331 yards on 67 rushes with 6 touchdowns on the ground and is also the Sun Devils' second leading receiver with 35 catches for 361 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Key Defensive Players: Will Sutton, DT: The fourth year junior has been nothing short of a major force up front for ASU. Sutton, second in the Pac-12 with 10.5 sacks, was listed as third team all-american on Phil Steele's midseason rankings.
Brandon Magee, LB: Listed as a first team all-Pac-12 player on Steel's midseason list, the fifth year senior, who missed last year due to an Achilles tear, leads ASU with 83 tackles. Magee also plays on the ASU baseball team and was drafted in the 29th round of the 2008 MLB draft by Tampa Bay.
