Taylor Kelly put seven touchdowns up on overmatched Washington State.
We're looking at some of the top individual performances in the Pac-12 in 2013.

Up next: Kelly orders a 7-up.

Who and against whom: Arizona State quarterback Taylor Kelly was a one-man wrecking crew in the Sun Devils’ 55-21 Halloween win over Washington State in Pullman.

The numbers: Kelly completed 22 of 31 passes for 275 yards with five passing touchdowns to go with 66 rushing yards and two scores on the ground.

A closer look: It was Kelly’s second five-touchdown performance of the season and the third of his career. The Sun Devils opened the game by scoring touchdowns on three of their first four possessions. The first two came on Kelly runs, the first from 7 yards out and the second from 6 yards. Then he connected on touchdown passes to Jaelen Strong, D.J. Foster, Richard Smith and Chris Coyle before the first half ended. His fifth passing touchdown and seventh total TD went to Foster in the third quarter. It matched the Pac-12 season high for touchdowns responsible for. Oregon’s Marcus Mariota (five passing, two rushing) against Colorado was the only other player to account for seven scores in a game this season. The victory was No. 3 in a seven-game win streak to close out the regular season for the Sun Devils.
