Top performances 2012: Brandon Magee

February, 8, 2013
We're looking at some of the top individual performances in the Pac-12 in 2012.

Up next: Tackling machine.

Who and against whom: Arizona State linebacker Brandon Magee was all over the field in ASU's come-from-behind, 41-34 win over Arizona in the Territorial Cup.

The numbers: Magee tallied 17 tackles, 14 solo and three tackles for a loss.

A closer look: Playing in his final Territorial Cup and final Pac-12 game, Magee went crazy with a career high in tackles. The performance put him over the 100-tackle mark for the season, making him the first Sun Devil to break 100 in a single season since Robert James in 2007. With ASU trailing 27-17 and the Wildcats at midfield, he came up with a huge tackle for a loss on third-and-8 to end the quarter. That helped spark a 24-point outburst in the fourth from the ASU offense. The 17 tackles matched the second highest total in a single game in the league in 2012 (Michael Clay had 20 against Stanford, 10 solo).
