Although the Arizona State Sun Devils suffered another brutal loss on Friday night, their final 6-6 record still means they're bowl eligible. The only question that remains is which bowl ASU will be attending.
Since UCLA lost to USC on Saturday night, the Sun Devils are likely to earn a spot in the appropriately-named Hundai Sun Bowl. If that's the case, ASU will travel to El Paso, TX on New Year's Eve to take on a representative from the ACC, most likely Virginia.
Although this 2011 season may not be fondly remembered, either by ASU fans or players, they can at least be proud of managing to avoid a losing season and potentially seeing any bowl game hopes slip away, as was the case with the Bruins this past weekend.
