TEMPE, Ariz. - Quarterback Jayden Daniels ran for a career-high 122 yards, Rachaad White added two rushing touchdowns and No. 23 Arizona State eventually pulled away for a 37-10 win over UNLV.

White had 90 yards on the ground and scored a crucial 9-yard touchdown late in the third quarter to give Arizona State a 21-10 lead. He added a 1-yard touchdown run early in the fourth.

Daniels was 20 of 29 passing for 175 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The second touchdown was a 33-yarder to LV Bunkley-Shelton that put the Sun Devils up 34-10 and capped a stretch of three touchdowns in less than seven minutes, turning a tight game into a comfortable margin.

UNLV hadn't won a football game since 2019 and came into the game a 33.5-point underdog, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, but didn't look overmatched for a big chunk of the night. Arizona State had to work for its 14-10 halftime lead.

The Sun Devils quickly moved downfield on the first drive before Daniels' pass into the end zone was intercepted by UNLV's Nohl Williams. The Rebels then put together an impressive 16-play, 70-yard drive that took nearly eight minutes.

UNLV settled for a 28-yard field goal from Daniel Gutierrez to take a 3-0 lead.

Daniels hit Johnny Wilson for a 3-yard touchdown pass to push Arizona State ahead 7-3 early in the second quarter, but UNLV followed with another good drive. This one ended when Brumfield scored a spectacular 4-yard touchdown, doing a somersault into the end zone after getting hit in the air right at the goal line.

Arizona State responded with a 13-yard touchdown run from Daniyel Ngata to take a 14-10 lead into the break.

UNLV's Jacob Brumfield threw for 60 yards and ran for a touchdown.
