Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Brock Osweiler threw two touchdown passes to Aaron Pflugrad before leaving with leg cramps, Cameron Marshall ran for two more scores and Arizona State opened the season with a 48-14 blowout of UC Davis Thursday night.

Arizona State dominated UC Davis from the start, rolling up 517 total yards while holding the FCS Aggies in check until the backups gave up a couple of late scores.

Osweiler was sharp in his first home start, throwing for 262 yards before limping off following a 13-yard touchdown pass to Pflugrad midway through the third quarter.

Marshall scored on a pair of 2-yard runs in the opening quarter to get Arizona State off to fast start and Jamal Miles made it a runaway by opening the second half with a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, giving the Sun Devils some momentum before facing No. 21 Missouri next week.
