Taylor Kelly threw three first-half touchdown passes as Arizona State rolled over visiting Utah in Pac-12 Conference play.

Kelly connected with Rashad Ross for a 38-yard score, Marion Grice on a 10-yard TD strike and Cameron Marshall on a 13-yard touchdown as Arizona State (3-1) won its conference opener. Kelly finished with 326 yards passing, completing 19 of 26 attempts, before enjoying the rest of the rout from the sidelines early in the third quarter.
