Aug. 25, 1997
New Mexico State (1-10 in 1996)
at Arizona State (11-1 in 1996)
Aug. 30, Sun Devil Stadium/Frank Kush Field, 7 p.m.
Arizona State opens its 86th season of football Saturday, August 30, by hosting nonconference foe New Mexico State at Sun Devil Stadium/Frank Kush Field. Head coach Bruce Snyder returns 36 lettermen and 10 starters from the 1996 squad that recorded the fourth undefeated regular season in ASU history and finished fourth in both major polls. First-year head coach Tony Samuel takes the reigns of a NMSU program that was 1-10 in 1996. Samuel, a Nebraska assistant from 1986-96, inherits an Aggies' squad that returns 41 lettermen and 11 starters.
Series Summary: This is the first meeting between ASU and New Mexico State since the Sun Devils beat the Aggies 14-13 in 1963. ASU won 17 of the last 18 meetings with New Mexico State and holds a 20-6-1 edge in the all-time series that saw the two schools meet 30 times between 1939-1963.
Over the Air: KTVK-TV/NewsChannel 3 will televise the season-opener live with Tim Healey and Dan Manucci. Coverage begins at 6 p.m. with a one-hour pregame show. KMVP (860 AM) is the flagship station for the Sun Devil radio network. Tom Dillon, the Arizona Sportscaster-of-the-Year 16 years running (1981-96), and the voice of the Sun Devils since 1979, once again will handle the play-by-play duties. Former Sun Devil QB and 1987 Rose Bowl MVP Jeff Van Raaphorst (1983-86) returns for his second season as the color analyst. KMVP and KTAR have teamed with AudioNet to provide all Sun Devil radio broadcasts on the internet. Each broadcast can be accessed at www.audionet.com/schools/asu.
The Polls: Neither ASU or New Mexico State appear in the AP or ESPN/USA Today Coaches polls. ASU did receive votes in each poll and would be ranked 27th in the coaches poll and 29th AP poll.
Pac-10 Poll: Arizona State has been picked to finish fifth in the Pac-10 in a pre-season poll of West Coast media members that regularly cover the league. Washington received 28 of 31 first-place votes to be tabbed as the favorite for 1997. The complete poll:
1. Washington (28) 306 6. Arizona 151 2. Stanford (3) 263 7. Washington St. 142 3. USC 228 8. Oregon 114 4. UCLA 217 9. California 74 5. Arizona St. 175 10. Oregon St. 35
Season Openers: Arizona State is 56-26-2 (.679) on opening day. The Sun Devils have won 9 of their last 11 season-openers. Interestingly enough, the New Mexico State opener is the first time since 1993 that ASU has opened against a nonconference opponent. That bodes well, as ASU has won seven straight season-openers that have come against non-Pac-10 foes. It will be only the third time in Snyder's six years that Washington is not the Sun Devils first foe. Snyder is 3-2 in season-openers with both losses coming to the Huskies.
Home Openers: Arizona State has won four straight and 10 of its last 12 home openers. The Sun Devils are 60-21-1 (.738) all-time in their first game before the home fans. In Sun Devil Stadium, ASU is 32-7 (.821) in home openers. Under Snyder, ASU is 4-1 in home openers.Preseason Pundits: As ASU heads into the 1997 season, the preseason college football annuals rank the Sun Devils anywhere from 12th to 35th in the nation while selecting ASU to finish somewhere between third and sixth in defense of its Pac-10 title. Below is a list of various preseason magazine and internet predictions for ASU:

Defending the Title: 1997 will mark the second time Arizona State has defended a Pac-10 championship in the 19 years the Sun Devils have been a member of the league. The Sun Devils captured their first Pac-10 title in 1986 and followed up with a 7-4-1 season in 1987 that included a trip to the Freedom Bowl, ASU's last bowl appearance before last year. ASU has totaled 16 conference championships, picking up seven each as a member of the Border Conference and WAC. In its 15 previous title defenses, ASU has repeated as champion five times - winning back-to-back Border crowns in 1939-40 and picking up five straight trophies from 1969-73 in the WAC. On average, ASU has won 7.4 games the year after a conference crown.
Last Time Out: Playing in its first bowl game since 1987, ASU fell 19 seconds short of an undefeated season and national championship as Ohio State rallied for a 20-17 win before 100,635 at the Rose Bowl. Jake Plummer scored on an 11-yard touchdown run with 1:40 left in the game to give the Sun Devils a 17-14 lead, but Ohio State drove 65 yards in 12 plays to score the winning touchdown, a five-yard pass from Joe Germaine to David Boston.
On Deck: Following the season-opener, ASU is idle for one week before traveling to Miami for a battle with the 13th-ranked Hurricanes in the Orange Bowl. CBS will televise the game to 72 percent of the country with game time at 12:30 in Phoenix, 3:30 on the East Coast.
Home Page: ASU, in partnership with University Netcasting, launched its brand new official home page on the world wide web. The latest news, results and satistics can be found at www.TheSunDevils.com.
Streaks: Arizona State's 11-1 run through 1996 contributed to starting a number of strings for the Sun Devils. Entering 1997, ASU will look to continue a few streaks that are still alive:
- 3 ASU has won 15 of its last 17 games, including 11 straight regular-season contests. Its last regular season loss: Nov. 24, 1995, 31-28 vs. Arizona.
- 3 ASU has won seven straight and 9 of its last 10 home games. Its last home loss: Nov. 24, 1995, 31-28 vs. Arizona.
- 3 ASU has won eight straight and 11 of its last 12 Pac-10 games. It last conference loss: Nov. 24, 1995, 31-28 vs. Arizona.

Over the last eight years, only Stanford, Oregon and Washington have had more football players honored for their performance on and off the field. Below is a chart of the number of Pac-10 All-Academic players for each school from 1989-96.

Academic All-America: The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) has been selecting Academic All-Americans for more than 30 years in all sports. In the Pac-10, Arizona State has been among the all-time leaders in student-athletes honored academically on a national scale, maintaining a 3.2 GPA or higher. Here's how ASU ranks in the Pac-10:School CoSIDA All-Americans UCLA......................70 Stanford..................59 Arizona...................46 Arizona State.............34 USC.......................33 Oregon................... 31 Oregon State..............26 California................21 Washington................21 Washington State..........21
Sizing up the Schedule: ASU's 1997 schedule may be one of the toughest in the nation. In addition to the always tough Pac-10 slate, the Sun Devils have added nonconference foes Miami, BYU and New Mexico State. Five of the Sun Devils opponents went to bowls a year ago: Miami (Carquest), BYU (Cotton), Washington (Holiday), Stanford (Sun) and California (Aloha). The Sun Devils face all but BYU on the road. ASU's 11 opponents combined for a 70-60 mark last season while only two won less than five games. Four of ASU's first seven games are on the road this season which is in stark contrast to a year ago when the Sun Devils' first five games were in Tempe. On the flip side, ASU finishes up with three of its final four games at home.
Home Field Advantage: Sun Devil Stadium has provided ASU with a significant home field edge since its inception in 1958. Arizona State is 193-62-3 (.754) all-time in Sun Devil Stadium and 5-0 since the playing surface was dedicated as Frank Kush Field. ASU was undefeated at home in 1996 and drew four of the six largest crowds in ASU history, including a record 74,963 to the Rose Bowl-clinching win over California. ASU drew an average of 63,884 to seven home games in 1996, a jump of 15,003 from the previous season - the largest increase in the nation.
Mirror Image: A comparison of Bruce Snyder's five seasons at Cal and his first five seasons at ASU reveals striking similarities. Snyder's record during his five years (1987-91) at California was 29-24-4 (.544) while his record after five years at ASU stands at 32-24 (.571).At California At Arizona State Year Record Bowl Year Record Bowl 1987 3-6-2 1992 6-5 1988 5-5-1 1993 6-5 1989 4-7-0 1994 3-8 1990 7-4-1 Copper 1995 6-5 1991 10-2-0 Citrus 1996 11-1 Rose Totals 29-24-4 Totals 32-24
1996 in Review: ASU finished last season ranked fourth in both major polls after going 11-1 and 8-0 in the Pac-10, winning its second Pac-10 title. The Sun Devils completed an undefeated regular season, the fourth in ASU history, before falling to Ohio State in the Rose Bowl. Sun Devil QB Jake Plummer, OT Juan Roque, TB Terry Battle and DE Derrick Rodgers each received All-America recognition as Roque was a consensus pick and Plummer finished third in the Heisman Trophy balloting. Head coach Bruce Snyder was the consensus choice for National Coach of the Year, winning 14 of a possible 16 awards, and earned his second Pac-10 Coach of the Year honor.
Hall of Fame Year: Former Sun Devils Danny White and Mike Haynes each are receiving Hall of Fame recognition in 1997. White, ASU's starting QB from 1971-73, was elected into the College Football Hall of Fame in January, becoming the first Sun Devil player to ever receive that honor. Haynes, a Sun Devil from 1972-75, became the third (John Henry Johnson, Charley Taylor) ASU player inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during a July ceremony.
Father Like Son: Danny White's will join his father, Wilford "Whizzer" White, and Bobby Mulgado as the only Sun Devils to have their jersey retired prior to the BYU game, September 20. Whizzer, No. 33, played for the Sun Devils from 1947 to 1950, leading the nation in rushing and all-purpose running in '50. Mulgado, No. 27, was a four-time letterman from 1954-57 and led the nation in punt returning and extra points while finishing second in scoring. All three are members of ASU's Hall of Fame.
Turnover Edge: In its last 17 games (dating back to 1995), ASU has a turnover ratio of +22 (42-20). In that span, ASU has accumulated 15 INTs and 27 fumble recoveries while opponents have registered 13 interceptions and seven recoveries. ASU is 15-2 during the stretch.Returning Honorees: Five Sun Devils return from seasons that earned them All-Pac-10 recognition a year ago (listed below). However, ASU will have to attempt to fill the shoes of 11 others who earned Pac-10 accolades, including five first-team performers. Name, Pos. 1996 Pac-10 Honor Kyle Murphy, LG 2nd team Pat Tillman, OLB 2nd team Robert Nycz, PK honorable mention Grey Ruegamer, RT honorable mention Jason Simmons, CB honorable mention
Martin Returns: Senior tailback Michael Martin has returned from a season-ending neck injury he suffered in the UCLA game (6th of the year) last season. After off-season surgery on his neck, Martin has been given total clearance to play. With just nine starts, Martin has rushed for over 1,000 yards in his Sun Devil career and was averaging 5.0 yards per carry last season before being sidelined. A preseason Doak Walker Award nominee, Martin has averaged 80 yards per contest in games he has started.Martin Game-By-Game When Starting Team Att. Yds. Avg.

Freshman Starters: Redshirt freshman Victor Leyva has earned the right guard starting spot after a strong fall camp. Leyva could become the first freshman offensive lineman to start on a consistent basis since Randall McDaniel in 1984. McDaniel has been a Pro Bowl selection from the Minnesota Vikings for eight consecutive seasons. Leyva, a graduate of Monache High in Porterville, Calif., redshirted last season and was moved from defensive line to right guard.
Leader of the Pac: Arizona State's undefeated march to the Pac-10 championship a year ago was dominating, as evidenced by the fact ASU led the conference in all but one major statistical category. The Sun Devils' rushing offense, total offense, scoring offense, rushing defense, pass efficiency defense, total defense and scoring defense were each ranked No.1 in the Pac-10. Only ASU's passing offense failed to lead the league, ranking fifth. Here's a look inside the numbers:
Category Score (Rank in Pac-10, margin) Rushing Offense 248.5 ypg (1st, + 18.5) Passing Offense 243.9 ypg (5th) Total Offense 492.5 ypg (1st, + 34.9) Scoring Offense 42.8 ppg (1st, + 8.4) Rushing Defense 98.0 ypg (1st, + 5.0) Pass Efficiency Defense 104.15 rating (1st, + 2.66) Total Defense 304.7 ypg (1st, + 16.1 ypg) Scoring Defense 17.8 ppg (1st, + 2.3 ppg)
Worst-to-First: After ranking last in the Pac-10 in defense in 1995, ASU's climb to the top of the conference chart was the first time in Pac-10 history a school has gone from worst-to-first in one season. ASU's top-notch defense marked the fourth time ASU has paced the league, but the first time since 1983.
Draft Success: Arizona State had eight football players selected in the 1997 NFL Draft, tied for the most in the nation with Miami and Nebraska (see chart below). In addition, ASU had six other players sign free agent contracts, giving it 14 players in NFL camps in 1997 from its 1996 squad. To break it down, of ASU's 22 starters on New Year's Day in the Rose Bowl, 11 (6 defensive, 5 offensive) are now in the NFL with the Sun Devils first string punter and two reserves joining them in the professional ranks.
Team Players Drafted 1. ASU...................8 Miami Nebraska 4. Florida State.........7 Ohio State 6. Colorado State........6 Texas Virginia
Rules Changes: As usual, 1997 brought a number of changes to the college football rule book. Some notable changes are:
- 3 After two overtime periods, a team scoring a touchdown must attempt a two-point try.
- 3 A player who violates the two-yard restriction surrounding a punt returner can be penalized 15 yards if any hit is deemed rough. A five-yard penalty is still an option if any hit in conjunction with interference is not rough.
- 3 Fouls occuring during a scoring play will not be carried over to a succeeding kick off or succeeding extra period.
