Final: Arizona State 55, UCLA 34

Arizona State may have a new starting QB.

After starter Steven Threet went down early with a head injury, Brock Osweiler came off the bench to pass for 380 yards and four touchdowns in a 55-34 pounding of UCLA.

The Bruins offense looked much better that it did during a woeful performance at Washington on Nov. 18, but the defense got gashed for 595 yards.

Sun Devils running back Cameron Marshall had 147 yards rushing, including a 71-yard TD, and Jamal Miles returned a kickoff 99 yards for another TD.

UCLA's bowl hopes are dashed. The Bruins fall to 4-7. They will conclude their season on Dec. 4 against rival USC. Bruins' fans are getting restless with third-year coach Rick Neuheisel, who probably will face significant pressure to breakthrough in 2011.

ASU's bowl hopes are still alive. The Sun Devils improved to 5-6. They need to win at rival Arizona on Dec. 2, and then hope for a waiver from the NCAA because they played two FCS teams.

Question: Is Osweiler the guy to start in Tucson? Coach Dennis Erickson didn't commit in the immediate aftermath.
