The Arizona State football program is ushering in a new era as Todd Graham coaches his first game for the Sun Devils against the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks Thursday night at Sun Devil Stadium.
ASU went 6-7 last season under the former Dennis Erickson regime, and even though Graham went 6-7 with Pitt last year, the change brought by him is palpable with the players and fans, hoping to get back to their previous winning ways.
As for NAU, it went 4-7 last season in FCS play, and will be the second straight season it starts against a Pac-12 team. It was blown out by Arizona 41-10 last season.
Where: Sun Devil Stadium, Tempe, Ariz.
When: 7:30 p.m. PT Thursday
