The ASU Rams football team on Oct. 26 defeated the University of Texas Perm­ian Basin Falcons at LeGrand Stadium at 1st Community Credit Union Field.

In the first drive of the game, senior Payne Sullins threw for 61 yards, but it wasn’t enough to bring ASU to the end zone. The drive would end when senior Connor Flani­gan kicked a field goal, which gave ASU a 3-0 lead.

During their second drive, ASU went to punt on fourth down, but the play resulted in a first down after UTPB roughed the kick­er. Right after, Sullins threw to senior Lawson Ayo for an ASU touchdown, which brought the score to 10-0 after Flanigan’s extra point.

UTPB would score their first and only touch­down before the end of the first quarter, which made the score 10-7.

In the second quarter, junior Devin Washington made an interception that gave ASU’s offense excellent field position. Af­ter the interception, Sullins threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to junior Keke Chism, which brought the score to 17-7 after the extra point.

UTPB began their offensive drive with a pass, but sophomore Simon Maxey made an inter­ception and returned it for a touchdown. Af­ter the extra point, ASU led UTPB 24-7.

Just before the end of the second quar­ter, Sullins threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to freshman Austin Landry, which brought the score to 31-7 after the extra point.

During halftime, the Ram Band per­formed the theme songs to “Game of Thrones” and “The Avengers” as part of their routine.

In the third quarter, ASU scored two touchdowns including a 2-yard run from junior Kellen Pachot and a 1-yard run from sophomore Daven Manning. ASU led UTPB 44-7 heading into the fourth quarter.

In the beginning of the fourth quar­ter, Washing­ton scored a touchdown on a 22-yard fumble re­covery, which brought the score to 51-7 after the ex­tra point from Flanigan. The final two touchdowns of the game would come from junior Alize Thom­as on 4-yard and 33-yard receptions from senior Charlie Rotherham.

ASU would finish the game with a 65-7 victory over UTPB.

In their next home game on Nov. 16, ASU will face off against Texas A&M Univer­sity-Commerce.
