Staying in the state to play in their fifth consecutive bowl game created a

highly anticipated matchup with the West Virginia Mountaineers. Playing

at Chase Field for the first time since the memorable 45-40 victory over

Rutgers in the 2005 Insight Bowl, the Sun Devils fell short in a good old-

fashioned shootout, 43-42. QB Mike Bercovici tied the ASU bowl record

with four touchdown passes and Tim White’s 289 all-purpose yards broke

Wilford White’s 1951 Salad Bowl record of 247. K Zane Gonzalez recorded

16 points (four field goals & four extra points), putting his total at 386, the

most career points in school history. Further school history was made by

Tim White, who recorded the team’s first-ever blocked kick returned for a

PAT at the end of the second quarter.

the Sun Devils earned a berth in their third consecutive bowl game

and traveled to San Diego to take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

forced fumble. Twenty-six seniors played in their final game at ASU,

including two-time Pac-12 Pat Tillman Defensive Player of the Year

The Arizona State University football team put it in the left lane with the

hammer down early and often as the team routed Navy, 62-28, to win the

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco. A 34-7 halftime lead set the

tone for a dominating third quarter that saw ASU score four touchdowns

- three of which coming in 55 seconds or less - as the team set a new

school record for points scored in a bowl game.   The 28 points was the

most scored in a quarter in ASU bowl history.  The Sun Devils finished

with 648 yards of total offense - over 50 more than the team’s previous

highest total this season of 593 yards against Colorado and among the

top-10 highest-grossing offensive games in school history and the most

since putting up a school record 773 yards against Northwestern in 2005.

At 9.6 yards per play today, the Sun Devils were just shy of the NCAA

Division I bowl record of 9.9, set in the 2011 Orange Bowl by Stanford.

Taylor Kelly finished 17-of-19 for 268 yards and four touchdowns in three

quarters of action before letting the reserves take it home. He finished

his debut season as ASU’s quarterback with 29 touchdown passes, good

for second on ASU’s all-time single-season list. Marion Grice had 159

yards on 14 attempts with two touchdowns and finished his season with

19 touchdowns - the third highest single-season scoring tally in school

history. The performance garnered him the Offensive MVP honor for the

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

Despite possessing a come-from-behind ability that was demonstrated

time and again throughout the 2007 season, a 21-point first quarter

deficit would prove to be too much for Arizona State to overcome as the

No. 19 Texas Longhorns defeated the No. 11 Sun Devils 52-34 in the

2007 Holiday Bowl. The Longhorns scored touchdowns on three of their

first five possessions to take a 21-0 lead late in the first quarter. Chris

MaGaha’s first touchdown reception of the season, a seven-yard toss

from Rudy Carpenter, got the Sun Devils on the scoreboard early in the

second quarter, cutting Texas’ lead to 21-7. Texas would build its lead

back up to 21 when Longhorn QB Colt McCoy took it in from nine yards

out. A 32-yard field goal by Lou Groza Award winner Thomas Weber

reduced Texas’ lead to 28-10 at the intermission. Weber would connect

on another field goal early in the third quarter, this one from 46 yards,

to bring the Sun Devils within 15 points, 28-13. The remainder of

the third quarter would see the teams exchange touchdowns before

a 10-point flurry by the Longhorns early in the fourth quarter would

put the game out of reach for ASU. With ASU facing an all-but-

insurmountable deficit, Danny Sullivan was inserted at quarterback

for the remainder of the game. The Los Gatos, Calif, native performed

admirably (7-14-118 yds, 1 TD, I INT), leading the Sun Devils on a pair

of touchdown drives to get them within 11 points, 45-34, with 3:42

left in the game. After an unsuccessful onsides kick attempt, Texas RB

Jamaal Charles, who ran for 161 yards, closed out the scoring with a

32-yard scoring run. Before leaving the game, Carpenter threw for 187

yards and a pair of touchdowns. Dimitri Nance (18 att, 48 yards) led

the Sun Devils rushing attack while McGaha tied his career best with a

game-high nine receptions for 79 yards. Mike Jones led all receivers on

the field with 107 yards (eight receptions) and two touchdowns.

The fifth edition of the Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl went to the Hawai’i

Warriors as they beat ASU 41-24 at Aloha Stadium. Despite holding

the nation’s top-ranked offense to only three points in the first half, the

Sun Devils could not shut down the Warriors in the second half. The

first half was not what many expected from two high-scoring teams,

as Arizona State used time consuming drives and attacking defense to
