Arizona State's Zane Gonzalez breaks Pac-12 scoring record

Sep 16, 2016

It was a historic, record-setting night for Arizona State's Zane Gonzalez at the Alamodome on Friday.

The senior out of Deer Park, Texas, etched his name in the top of the Pac-12 record book with 424 career points (81 FGs, 179 PATs, 2-point conversion).

Gonzalez broke Ka'imi Fairbairn's (UCLA) Pac-12 record of 413 career points, set in 2015 (68 FGs, 209 PATs).

Needing four points for the honor, Gonzalez achieved the milestone in epic fashion. He drilled two 54-yard field goals in the first half and became the first Sun Devil kicker to hit two 50+ yard FGs in the same game. 

Both of those early field goals were the second-longest in ASU history.

Gonzalez now has 81 career field goals, breaking into the top-10 in NCAA history in the category. He ties fellow Sun Devil Luis Zendejas for the Arizona State record at 81 FGs. The senior is closing in on the Pac-12 record, needing to total 85 for a three-way tie with UCLA's Kai Forbath (2007-10) and John Lee (1982-85).
