TEMPE, Ariz. Noah Syndergaard Jersey . -- Arizona States young secondary was uneven in its first test, allowing a quarterback from an FCS school to pick them apart.The competition is about to take a big step up.A week after allowing Northern Arizonas Case Cookus to throw for 369 yards, the young Sun Devils will face Texas Techs Patrick Mahomes and the Red Raiders Air Raid offense.Itll be a big challenge, Arizona State coach Todd Graham said. Probably as good as a quarterback as there is out there. Hes got be one of the best, if not the best in the Big 12.Arizona State had the worst passing defense in the FBS last season, allowing 337.8 yards per game. The Sun Devils had to replace three starters and have a new coach leading the defensive backs this season, so questions about the group lingered.Slowing Mahomes will be a huge test for the young Sun Devils.He threw for 1,547 yards and 16 touchdowns as a freshman at Texas Tech in 2014 and last season, his first as the full-time starter, had 4,653 yards and 36 TDs.Mahomes got his junior season off to a strong start, throwing for 483 yards and four touchdowns with 57 yards and two more scores rushing in a little over a half of last Saturdays 69-17 rout of Stephen F. Austin.The only concern: His protection.Mahomes was sacked twice and absorbed numerous other hits as Texas Techs offensive line struggled at times to keep Stephen F. Austins pass rushers at bay.Though Arizona State is trying to gear back its blitzes this season, the Sun Devils are still an attacking defense and will look to put plenty of pressure on Mahomes.Our offensive line has to play better, Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said. Some of those plays, he was forced to get out of the pocket sooner, after watching the tape. But he continued to make plays. Hes playing at a high level.A few more things to look for when Arizona State hosts Texas Tech:REMATCH?: Arizona State and Texas Tech played just three years ago, a 37-23 victory by Texas Tech in the 2013 Holiday Bowl. Graham and Kingsbury both coached in that game, but there arent many other similarities.That was a long time ago. Completely different teams, said Kingsbury, who earned his first bowl victory in that game. I think Coach Grahams evolved a lot on both sides of the ball and we have, too.OFFENSE AND MORE OFFENSE: Sun Devil Stadium could light up with offense Saturday night. Texas Tech is annually one of the nations most prolific offenses and put up 758 total yards against Stephen. F. Austin, fourth-highest in school history. Arizona State has been similarly productive in five seasons under Graham, playing at a fast-snapping pace few teams can keep up with. The Sun Devils started slow last week against NAU, but reeled off 24 points in the fourth quarter once they found their rhythm. Leave to get a drink and you could miss not just one score, but two or three.WILKINS RISES: Arizona State quarterback Manny Wilkins found himself on the highlight reels last week after hurdling a Northern Arizona defender during a second-quarter run. The rest of his performance was up and down. Wilkins won a lengthy duel with redshirt freshman Brady White to earn the starting nod for the season opener and gave the Sun Devils a run dimension they didnt have with Mike Bercovici last season. Wilkins threw for 180 yards and ran for 89 more, but Graham was most impressed with his poise and leadership in the opener. Tug McGraw Jersey .5 million, one-year contract on Friday. Hawkins, who turns 41 in December, will compete with Rex Brothers for the closers role at spring training. Mike Piazza Jersey . Just not the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. http://www.baseballmetsproshop.com/mets-david-wright-jersey/ . According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. STILLWATER, Okla. -- Phil Forte scored 31 points and Jawun Evans contributed 23 points, eight assists and five rebounds to lead Oklahoma State to a 102-90 victory over Central Arkansas on Monday.Jeffrey Carroll provided a spark off the bench once again for Oklahoma State (2-0), scoring 20 points and grabbing a game-high 11 rebounds.Forte, a sixth-year senior, fell one point shy of his career high. He finished fourth in the Big 12 in scoring in 2014-15 before he missed all but the first three games of last year with an elbow injury.I thought Phil was incredible tonight, at both ends of the court, said first-year Oklahoma State coach Brad Underwood, who earned his second victory. He was the one guy I thought was very dialed in.Jordan Howard scored 28 points for Central Arkansas (0-2), while Mathieu Kamba contributed 19 points -- 14 in the second half -- and 10 rebounds.The game was much closer than the score would indicate, despite the fact that Central Arkansas never led at all. When Howard sank a 3 with 11:57 remaining to cap a 12-4 run, the Bears trailed just 63-62, but Oklahoma State responded with 11 consecutive points over the next 2:47 to finally put the game out of reach. Central Arkansas never got closer than nine points the rest of the way.Im really proud of the guys and Im proud of the effort they put forth, said Central Arkansas coach Russ Pennell. We competed at a high level and thats one of the things Ive been wanting our guys to do. We bothered them with our pressure and when we got behind, we fought back.BIG PICTURECentral Arkansas: Howard continues to prove he can perform at a high level. After scoring 12 points and eight rebounds Friday night in a 79-47 loss to No. 9 Wisconsin, he put forth another impressive outing. Howard shot 7-for-13 from the floor, went 10 of 11 from the free throw line and matched a career-high with three steals.Oklahoma State: The Cowboys under Underwood still have plenty of work left to do. This game was a lot closer than it should have been, as Oklahomaa State turned the ball over 17 times, leading to 26 Central Arkansas points. Juan Lagares Jersey. The Cowboys also committed 30 fouls, putting Central Arkansas on the foul line 39 times (of which the Bears converted 28 for 71.8 percent). Starting forward Mitchell Solomon and freshman reserve Cameron McGriff both fouled out by the time there was 7:51 remaining, and two more players finished the game with four fouls.I think lack of communication is a big part of it, Underwood said of all the fouls. We dont understand that fouling is a defensive mistake. Weve obviously got to eliminate that problem.TIP-INSOklahoma State heaved up a lot of 3-point attempts, shooting 10 of 29 from beyond the arc. Forte led the way, going 4-for-10. . For the second straight game, Oklahoma State enjoyed the edge in bench production, outscoring Central Arkansas 36-26 off the bench, after holding a 45-30 advantage over Campbell in its opener. . Oklahoma State recorded 20 assists on 34 baskets after totaling just 10 in the opener.HE SAID ITTheres not enough adjectives to describe Phil, in my book, Underwood said of Forte. His value to our team will outlast his days in uniform here. Hes one of the hardest-working guys Ive ever been around. Hes becoming a very vocal leader, hes everything that a college student-athlete is about. He means the world to me, he means the world to this program and he means the world to our locker room. His play is speaking for itself right now.UP NEXTCentral Arkansas will next travel to West Point, N.Y., to take on Chattanooga, which has started out 1-1, as part of the first round of the Maui Jim Maui Invitational tournament on Saturday.Oklahoma State remains at home to take on New Orleans on Saturday. The Privateers opened its season with a 103-67 win over Division III La Grange on Friday.---This version corrects to show Jawun Evans had eight assists instead of eight steals. Cheap Jerseys 2018 Wholesale NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticJerseys Wholesale ' ' '
