Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl 2012, Navy vs. Arizona State: Sun Devils lead 34-7 at half

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

The Sun Devils have moved the ball at will against Navy, whose ground game has been stifled.

The balanced attack of Arizona State has prevailed thus far over the one-dimensional Navy attack. Sun Devils quarterback Taylor Kelly has thrown for three touchdowns and rushed for another to build a 34-7 lead over the Midshipmen in the first half. Keenan Reynolds has yet to get it going for Navy, which has been only mildly effective on the ground.

ASU scored on all five of its first-half possessions, with Kelly hitting Rashad Ross for a 52-yard score in the waning minutes to establish a 27-point lead. The Sun Devils quarterback has been efficient, going 12 of 14 through the air for 168 yards. Seven ASU players have caught passes, though none has more than two receptions.

Mistakes plagued the Midshipmen in the first half. A dropped touchdown catch by running back Gee Gee Greene and a missed field goal by Nick Sloan wiped out two scores for Navy. Option quarterback Keenan Reynolds has not been effective, gaining 28 yards on 13 carries. The total Midshipmen rushing attack is living up to expectations, however, rushing for 177 yards on 32 attempts, good for 5.5 yards per carry. But ASU has been more efficient, with 136 yards on 17 carries, an average of 8 yards per rush.
