After a somewhat controversial start in becoming the head coach of the ASU football team, coach Todd Graham came in and did what many of the fans and boosters wanted. He beat UofA in one heck of a game down in Tucson. While a couple of wins slipped through the cracks, most people look at the year as a turning point in to a new era. The team seems to have much more discipline and focus and the term “In Todd We Trust” has been thrown around Tempe quite often.
Now that the regular season is over, the Sun Devils will play Navy in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl at 2pm ( our time ) on December 29th in San Francisco. The game will be shown on ESPN2. See more info on the ASU vs Navy bowl game on the Kraft bowl site or the official ASU Bowl Game info page at theSunDevils.com for tickets and details.
Here, coach Graham talks about heading to San Francisco to finish out the season with a win against Navy.
There was a rough stretch of 4 games when ASU played nationally ranked Oregon (4), UCLA(17), Oregon St(13) and USC for 4 losses in a row but the team finished with two regular season wins in a row. Beating UofA is always icing on the cake. The ASU football schedule for next year includes some tough matchups of division champions including a trip to Texas Stadium to play Notre Dame. For sure, the team should be fun to watch…
