  • ASU opens season with (close) win

    TEMPE, AZ — It got a little too close for comfort late in the 2nd half, but Herb Sendek’s Arizona State Sun Devils opened the 2011-12 season with a 78- 72 win over Montana State at Wells Fargo Arena. The free throw line was the Sun Devils’ best friend on Friday, as they connected on […]
  • Arizona State hoops is in ‘attack mode’

    It happened once all last year. In the regular season finale against Oregon State, ASU scored a season-high 80 points in an 80-66 win; just four times did the Sun Devils reach 75 points or more. This season — albeit in an exhibition game — ASU has already hit the 80-point mark. Last week, head […]
  • ASU to battle weather, Washington State

    It’s going to be cold. It may even snow. “I’m excited,” said quarterback Brock Osweiler. He may be the only one. Osweiler grew up in Kalispell, Montana about five hours from Pullman, Washington where—according to, it’s expected to be in the low 30s with a good chance of rain and show showers Saturday night […]
  • Sun Devils in the Palouse, and Week 11 in the Pac-12

    With the constant media blitz coming out of State College, Pennsylvania surrounding the Jerry Sandusky mess and Joe Paterno firing, actual football has been put on the back burner by many. Of course, not by everyone–most of the Penn State community puts football above everything else, including morality, but I digress. It’s another full slate […]
  • ESPN insider: Washington State is trap game for ASU

    This season ASU was finally living up to some hype, the sloppy, mistake-ridden team from the past long gone. The Sun Devils were in the driver’s seat in the Pac-12 South needing only to win out in order to play in the first Pac-12 championship. The road appeared to be smooth, with only UCLA, Washington […]
  • ASU’s Bo Moos wants a win, needs a sack vs. WSU

    Mike Marcisz was the first. He was the loudest. “Your face a little cold, Bo?” Then, one teammate after another started piling on. “I lost a bet,” the now shaven Bo Moos explained. The ASU senior defensive tackle needed four tackles, one for a loss against UCLA Saturday in order to keep his beard. He […]
  • Don’t expect to see Sun Devils make a change at kicker

    Arizona State kicker Alex Garoutte has had ups and downs in his first year with the team, though none of the downs were as low as the one he suffered Saturday against UCLA. Called upon three times for field goal attempts, the freshman missed all three — including a 46-yard attempt that would won the […]
  • Territorial Cup time is set

    This year’s State Farm Territorial Cup showdown between the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils is scheduled for Saturday, November 19th will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. MST at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

  • ASU moves past UCLA defeat

    Disappointing. Gut-wrenching. That’s how ASU head coach Dennis Erickson described Saturday night’s 29-28 loss to UCLA. “We did not make plays when we had to,” he said Monday. Added quarterback Brock Osweiler, “I don’t know if you ever fully recover from a game like that. It’s something that definitely just takes time but it’s Monday. […]
  • Erickson: ‘I cost us 25 seconds’

    ASU had the ball at its own 24-yard line, down one and 42 seconds left on the clock. Brock Osweiler said they had plenty of time to move into field goal range for a possible game-winning kick. Dennis Erickson, however, said the Sun Devil offense should’ve had more time; and he blames himself for mismanaging […]
  • ASU (still) waiting on Jahii Carson

    The ASU basketball season begins Friday. The Sun Devils sixth season under head coach Herb Sendek tips off against Montana State; and yet, the biggest topic surrounding the program remains freshman point guard Jahii Carson. “I know the most frequently asked question these days is regarding Jahii’s status,” Sendek said Monday. “I’ll head you off […]
  • Sun Devils fall out of rankings

    Week four of the BCS standings were released on Sunday night, and the Arizona State Sun Devils were nowhere to be found following their disappointing 29-28 loss to UCLA on Saturday night. ASU had been ranked 19th last week before falling completely out of the standings, which consider the USA Today Coaches’ Poll, the Harris […]

  • Devils give up Pac-12 South driver’s seat

    The Skinny – Freshman Alex Garoutte missed a 47- yard field goal as time expired and the UCLA Bruins escaped with a 29-28 win over the Arizona State Sun Devils before 65,438 fans at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The Bruins took the lead on a 1-yard Derrick Coleman touchdown run with :49 remaining. ASU […]
  • ESPN analyst says Devils should have no trouble with Bruins

    When the college football season first kicked off some thought Saturday’s UCLA vs. ASU matchup would determine the winner of the Pac-12 South. Those people aren’t wrong, necessarily, but it’s hard to really say they’re right. While ASU has finally lived up to the hype, UCLA has fallen flat on its face. UCLA currently stands […]
  • Grand Canyon students pumped for ASU exhibition

    Saturday night Herb Sendek’s Arizona State Sun Devils are playing a game in the Valley, and they’ll undoubtedly be the visitors. The Devils will bus over to Central Phoenix to visit the Grand Canyon Antelopes, a Division II team coached by former ASU assistant and radio broadcaster Russ Pennell, in an exhibition game to prepare […]
  • GCU opens new arena vs. ASU

    It’s just an exhibition. It doesn’t count. Sure, try telling that to the students at Grand Canyon University. “Man, everybody is excited,” said Antelopes senior point guard Kyle Speed. “It’s almost like the rest of the season doesn’t even exist.” Added head coach Russ Pennell on the buzz around campus, “This is the Super Bowl, […]
  • ASU to face “talented” UCLA team

    So, which UCLA team will ASU face Saturday? Will it be the team that allowed 48 points and lost by 36 to U of A? Or. Will it be the team that scored 31 points and beat Cal by 17? Sun Devil head coach Dennis Erickson is betting on the latter. “UCLA has a lot […]
  • Another opponent comments on Burfict

    Leading up to their game against Arizona State on September 24th, several members of the USC Trojans were asked about facing feared Sun Devil linebacker Vontaze Burfict. They didn’t hold their tongues. “I’ll drill him,” offensive tackle Matt Kalil said. Quarterback Matt Barkley referred to Burfict as a “dirty player”–a tactic that drew a reprimand […]
