ASU knows Sun Bowl against Duke is no vacation

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State hasn't fretted over its most recent game heading into a Sun Bowl matchup against the Duke Blue Devils. There's not much point in dwelling on a Territorial Cup loss now. The Sun Devils also haven't recited the score of their Holiday Bowl loss to Texas Tech last December (it was 37-23), but the regrets openly discussed this month had to do with the lead...

ASU season preview: Special teams look to improve under Patterson

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State had more than a few issues in last season's Pac-12 Championship Game loss to Stanford, but perhaps none was more glaring than special teams. They were just as bad or worse in the Holiday Bowl, and Graham hinted strongly at a looming change.

Healthy Middlebrooks seeking career revival as ASU senior

TEMPE, Ariz. -- This spring, Arizona State running back Kyle Middlebrooks has turned back the clock. From reviving his old nickname -- Sonic, a name given to him by fellow freshmen in 2010 after the video game hedgehog with blazing speed -- right on down to his old haircut, Middlebrooks is sparing no measure as he tries to rediscover his old self. Now healthy after missing all of...
