The Holiday Bowl
Well…its official. The Sun Devils, even in a tie for the PAC 10 title with USC and a fabulous 10-2 season, were snubbed from the BCS. Oh well…you can’t control it, so you’ve got to roll with the punches. We take on a very respectable Texas team on December 27th in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego. I’m trying to get a party bus together to drive down (and when I say party bus, I mean several 30-something dads who have to get permission from their wives to rent an RV an drive to San Diego right after Christmas).
Tickets are available now. ASU and Texas have, believe it or not, never played each other…ever. That’s something like 105 years of football…and they’ve never met. Should be a great game…and a win in this bowl game will be a perfect cap to an unbelievable season for the Devils. Could have gone better…but we’ve gotten used to much worse over the past 5 years. String a couple seasons like this together…and Dennis Erickson will have earned his money and his accolades.
Great job this year, Sun Devils. One more to go. Go Devils!
