ASU Sun Devils Announce First-Ever 'Black Out'

When the Arizona State Sun Devils unveiled their new uniforms a few weeks ago excitement quickly built for the new black version. Now we learn how the school plans on using the special new alternate color scheme to create more buzz for a team that doesn't get nearly as much local support as other big college programs.
