Kelly and Arizona State rout Navy in Hunger Bowl

Updated: December 29, 2012

Taylor Kelly threw four touchdown passes and ran for another as Arizona State won the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl with a dominating 62-28 victory over Navy at AT&T Park.

Kelly was nearly flawless in directing an Arizona State offense that was
nearly unstoppable, with the Sun Devils piling up 648 total yards and scoring
touchdowns on each of their first nine possessions. ASU wasn’t stopped until
giving the ball away on downs early in the fourth quarter with the outcome
already decided.

The sophomore quarterback completed 17-of-19 passes for 268 yards, while
adding 81 more on the ground on seven attempts to help give Arizona State
(8-5) its first bowl victory since 2005.

Rashad Ross was on the receiving end of three of Kelly’s scoring tosses and
amassed a career-high 139 yards on four catches. Running backs Marion Grice
and Cameron Marshall each recorded two touchdowns in the rout, with Grice
finishing with 159 yards on just 14 carries.

Gee Gee Greene and Chris Swain were the lone bright spots on an otherwise
dreadful day for Navy (8-5), which had won seven of its last eight games
coming in. Greene rushed for 112 yards on 12 totes and returned a kickoff 95
yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, with Swain amassing 93 yards and
a touchdown on four carries in the loss.
