Arizona State opened the season with an emphatic 63-6 win over Northern Arizona on Thursday night at Sun Devil Stadium. In his first game as head coach, Graham's Sun Devils racked up 554 yards while holding their opponent to 237. ASU's defense forced three turnovers, including an interception that linebacker and team captain Brandon Magee returned 45 yards for a touchdown.
"Obviously, we dominated a team we should dominate," Graham told the team. "But we totally dominated a team we should dominate."
