TEMPE, Ariz. -- Jacquizz Rodgers ran for two touchdowns, Sean Canfield threw for two more scores and Oregon State beat Arizona State 28-17 on Saturday for its first road win over the Sun Devils in 40 years.
James Rodgers and Damola Adeniji each caught a touchdown pass for the Beavers (3-2, 1-1 Pac-10), who had lost 16 straight to the Sun Devils (2-2, 0-1) in Tempe. Oregon State bounced back into contention in the Rose Bowl race after losing its conference opener to Arizona last week.
Oregon State's last win over ASU in Tempe came on Sept. 27, 1969, before the Sun Devils joined the Pac-10. The Beavers have struggled in the desert, but they made themselves at home in Sun Devil Stadium, which was barely half-filled on an 88-degree afternoon.
The Beavers took the crowd out of the game early by jumping out to a 21-3 halftime lead and coasting the rest of the way.
