Sun Devils Look for Another Top 15 Finish

Arizona State is ranked 16th in the latest AP poll and 18th in the coaches' ESPN/USA Today rankings. A win in the Sun Bowl against Iowa would assure the Sun Devils of finishing in the rankings for the 16th time in their history and second consecutive season. If the Sun Devils finish in the top 15, it would be their 10th top 15 finish in school history.

Here's a look at ASU journey through the polls in 1997 and where ASU has finished in its history:
