Top 2013 performances: Chris Young

We're looking at some of the top individual performances in the Pac-12 in 2013.

Up next: Young gets old for Bruins

Who and against whom: Arizona State outside linebacker Chris Young is the point man for a relentless Sun Devils pass rush in a win at UCLA.

The numbers: Young had a game-high 13 tackles -- 12 solo -- with three sacks in the 38-33 victory.

A closer look: Young, one of the Pac-12's more underrated players despite second-team All-Pac-12 honors, turned in perhaps his best game in the Pac-12 South Division game of the season. Not only was he everywhere all game for the Sun Devils' defense, but two of his three sacks came on the Bruins' final two possessions when the screws were tightening. In fact, the biggest play of the game might have been his sack of Brett Hundley for a 13-yard loss on the Bruins second to last possession. UCLA, down just five points, looked poised to take the lead, facing a 3rd-and-6 from the Arizona State 7-yard line, but Young's sack forced the Bruins to try for a 37-yard field goal, which was missed. Young led a nine-sack attack that made the difference in the game, perhaps the Sun Devils most meaningful road win since 1996.
