Third quarter: Arizona State 23, Missouri 16
By Ted Miller
TEMPE, Ariz. -- A little trickeration will send Arizona State into the fourth quarter with a 23-16 lead over Missouri.
Receiver Jamal Miles took a double-pass from Brock Osweiler and found Aaron Pflugrad for a 35-yard touchdown, which left the Sun Devils one quarter away from their first win over a ranked team since 2007.
Up to that point, the Tigers had dominated the third with a pair of drives for field goals, but their inability to punch it in against a bend-but-don't break ASU defense is the difference.
Big game from Pflugrad, an Oregon transfer. He's caught six passes for 160 yards.
