Sun Devils tie it up behind Threet
By Adam Rittenberg
MADISON, Wis. -- This feels like a high-scoring game, but the scoreboard says otherwise. Both offenses continue to move the ball pretty much at will until inside opposing territory.
Arizona State quarterback Steven Threet continues to pass the ball in rhythm, but an incomplete pass in the end zone to T.J. Simpson forced a game-tying field goal by Thomas Weber. Wisconsin cornerback Niles Brinkley seemed fortunate to avoid a pass-interference penalty on the play, as he never turned around for the ball. Threet has completed 14 of 20 passes for 140 yards.
The Sun Devils have racked up 239 yards without reaching the end zone. That needs to change against a Wisconsin offense that usually gets stronger as the game goes on.
