Roundup: ASU and USC keep the Pac-12 perfect in bowl season
The Pac-12 is still perfect in the bowl season thanks to some solid work done by a couple of Pac-12 South schools Saturday. The day started with Arizona State edging Duke 36-31 in the Sun Bowl in El Paso in large thanks to freshman running back Demario Richard scoring four touchdowns. However, the game wasn’t over until Arizona State defensive back Kweishi Brown intercepted a pass in the end zone with 45 seconds left. Before the Sun Bowl, Jeff Metcalfe wrote about how Kweishi Brown’s mom was his football coach growing up, so I suggest you visit or re-visit the article.
