Arizona State 45, Illinois 14
: Taylor Kelly and Michael Eubank, Arizona State's rotating quarterbacks, completed their first 14 passes and accounted for four touchdowns as the host Sun Devils rolled over short-handed Illinois.

Kelly, who started, finished 18 of 24 passing for 249 yards and a touchdown. Eubank connected on 5 of 5 passes for two touchdowns and ran for another. Both Eubank TD passes went to Chris Coyle, who had 10 catches for 131 yards.

Reilly O'Toole got the start, but had little success, completing 10 of 14 passes for 54 yards. Miles Osei didn't fare much better.
