Cooler weather presents problems for Arizona State in Pullman this weekend

Although the snowflakes that descended upon Martin Stadium on Thursday will likely be gone by the time Arizona State and Washington State kick off on Saturday, they serve as a crystalline reminder that we have entered November, a month that has proven to be a frozen hell for the Sun Devils.

Bobby Hurley quickly becomes popular hire at Arizona State

TEMPE, Ariz. – The theater inside Arizona State’s athletic complex was packed, television cameras everywhere. Even football coach Todd Graham and his staff showed up. Bobby Hurley can draw a crowd. Arizona State wanted to make a splash with its next basketball coach, and so far it’s done just that.

Bobby Hurley takes over Sun Devils after 2-year stint at Buffalo

Arizona State hired Bobby Hurley as its basketball coach, the school announced Thursday. The 43-year-old Hurley spent the past two years as the head coach at Buffalo, which he led to 23 wins and an NCAA tournament berth this past season. He replaces Herb Sendek, who was fired March 24 after nine seasons. Hurley has an extensive basketball background, playing for father Bob Hurley Sr. in Jersey City, New Jersey, and four years at Duke. A point guard, he led the Blue Devils to national championships in 1991 and 1992 and was an All-American in 1993. “Our purpose is to mold championship-caliber young men,” Hurley said in a statement. “We are here to set a new standard, to make regular trips to the NCAA tournament and regularly compete for conference and national titles.” – AP

Pac-12 men: 12th-seeded USC surprises Arizona State

LAS VEGAS – Southern California found itself trailing by 14 with 9 minutes left. No way was a young, inexperienced team that had a history of losing close games going to come back.

Ex-WSU defensive back Jordan Simone clicks with Arizona State

PULLMAN – For a year Jordan Simone stood in the stands watching the Sun Devils play like any regular student, trying to convince those around him that, yes, he actually was a member of the team. Nobody needs any convincing now that he plays for Arizona State. That is, if they don’t already recognize the potential all-conference safety.

Oregon State upsets No. 7 Arizona State

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Sean Mannion’s 66-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter gave Oregon State the lead and Michael Doctor’s 35-yard interception return for a score with 1:38 left sealed the Beavers’ 35-27 win over No. 7 Arizona State on Saturday night. Mannion threw for 251 yards and two touchdowns for the Beavers (5-5, 2-5 Pac-12), who snapped a four-game losing streak.

TEMPE, Ariz. – Taylor Kelly threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Demario Richard in the fourth quarter and Lloyd Carrington followed with a 58-yard interception return for another score, helping No. 11 Arizona State withstand a furious second-half rally to beat No. 8 Notre Dame 55-31 on Saturday.

Sun Devils beat Utes in overtime

TEMPE, Ariz. – Zane Gonzalez kicked a 36-yard field goal in overtime for his fourth field goal and No. 15 Arizona State overcame an uneven performance to take control of the Pac-12 South with a 19-16 victory over No. 18 Utah on Saturday night. Utah (6-2, 3-1, No. 17 CFP) had the ball first in overtime and had to call a timeout just before Andy Phillips attempted a 35-yard field goal to avoid a delay-of-game penalty. Phillips, one of the nation’s best kickers, pushed that attempt wide right and pulled the attempt that counted left – his first miss in four attempts on the night.

Arizona State stuns No. 16 USC 38-34 on game-ending TD

LOS ANGELES – Mike Bercovici collapsed on the Coliseum turf after he released his final throw for Arizona State, cramping up from dehydration. Jaelen Strong wasn’t sure he could get to it, but he sprinted and leaped, not quite sure how he ended up with the ball in the end zone, his teammates mobbing him.

Passing the torch

LOS ANGELES – Not every school brought a quarterback to Pac-12 media days, but those that did not were immediately suspect. Over two days in Southern California the league’s coaches and a smattering of its best players gushed about the Pac-12’s quality and quantity at the most important position in football. Only Arizona and Washington do not return a starting quarterback from last season, and of the returnees only Colorado’s Sefo Liufau and Utah’s Travis Wilson weren’t chosen to represent their schools at the conference’s Hollywood powwow.

Texas edges Arizona State 87-85 on buzzer-beater

MILWAUKEE – The shot was long, and it smacked hard off the glass in the final seconds. That’s when big Cameron Ridley, standing every bit of 6-foot-9 and 285 pounds, reached down, picked up the ball and put it in as time expired. Hello Texas, and welcome back to March Madness.
