Todd Graham votes ASU as No. 20

Christian Petersen

The ASU head coach put his own team at No. 20 in his final coaches poll ballot.

Every week during the college football season, head coaches at all FBS schools cast a ballot for the USA Today coaches poll. Once per season, the poll reveals the ballots of each coach. This always comes with the final poll of the season and it usually reveals some odd and downright flabbergasting votes. One of those votes belongs to Arizona St. Sun Devils head coach Todd Graham who voted his own team No. 20 in his final ballot of the season. Graham's placement of his own team at No. 20 represented the highest vote for the Sun Devils.

Arizona State finished the season 7-5 and won only one game against an FBS opponent with a winning record this year: their Territorial Cup win over the Arizona Wildcats.There was one other coach who put the Sun Devils in the top 25. Arkansas State's Gus Malzahn had Arizona State at No. 24; he also ranked his own Red Wolves at No. 17, the highest on any poll submitted. Malzahn was Graham's offensive coordinator when Graham was the head coach at Tulsa.

The Sun Devils will face the Navy Midshipmen in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco on Dec. 29.
