Eno Benjamin Sets New School Record In Arizona State Win!

[Tempe, AZ] Arizona State came into tonight’s matchup having lost their last two games against ranked Washington, and unranked San Diego State.  Herm Edwards had to put together a good game plan to try and get the Sun Devils back on track.  However, his young team has played very well at home this season, which included an upset victory over ranked Michigan State.
