ASU Vs. Cal: There Are Still Things To Root For Tonight

With the door now officially closed on ASU's Pac-12 South division hopes, some may think that tonight's game may be devoid of merit. That's untrue.

There are a few things that make this game significant, so here goes.

1) Senior Night. This will be the final home game for these seniors: Oliver Aaron, George Bell, Omar Bolden, Jonathan Clark, Chris De Armas, Eddie Elder, Nick Emanuele, Clint FloydGarth Gerhart, Jamaar Jarrett, Cameron Kastl, Dan Knapp, Trevor Kohl, Shelly Lyons, Angelo Magee, Mike MarciszTrent Marsh, Bo Moos, Colin Parker, Aaron Pflugrad, Gerell Robinson, Zach Schlink, Aderious Simmons, T.J. Simpson Adam Tello, Steven Threet and Mike Willie

These young men deserve to be sent out with a victory.

2) Bowl Game. For the first time in since the 2007 season, ASU will be going bowling. Granted, it will not be the one they were hoping for, but a bowl is still a bowl. Whether it's the Holiday, Sun, Maaco or others, knowing the Devils will be playing another game is a nice thought.

3) Record Breaking. Lost in the disappointment of the late-season slide is the fact that several prominent records can be broken. Sadly, the Devils will not have the luxury of the Pac-12 title game to help out, but the bowl game should help. 

Brock Osweiler is chasing the single-season marks in passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions and attempts. Cameron Marshall needs just three rushing touchdowns to set the school mark. And Gerell Robinson has an outside shot at the receiving yards mark if he can continue his hot play.

4) It's a Sun Devil Football. There are only a dozen or so of these great events a year--an ASU football game. Sit back, relax (until the team starts making their mistakes) and enjoy watching your Sun Devils.
