Kingsbury played quarterback at Texas Tech under current Washington State coach Mike Leach, one of the pioneers of the “Air Raid.” While Kingsbury has tweaked the system a bit with more running, ASU has essentially faced the offense this season and last. “We’re definitely comfortable with what they’re running,” Young said. “We’re not really surprised by anything, but they have more decent players than Washington State did.” Added Graham: “Very, very similar. I think they’re more athletic. I think they run the ball more. They’re bigger up front on the offensive line. But you can definitely see it’s the same fast-tempo ‘Air Raid’ offense.” Of high priority for ASU’s defense will be stopping All-American tight end Jace Amaro, Texas Tech’s leading receiver and the leading receiver among tight ends nationally.

Holiday road toll rises to 18
We practiced driving at dusk. We bought a snow globe with a mummified shrunken head in it, and a sign that reads, “Soccer Mom Parking Only.” We cleared snow from the driveway, brought in the groceries, and stayed up til 1 a.m., talking. We sighed. We laughed. We held back tears until they wouldn’t stand to be held back anymore, and then we hugged each other, sobbing. We said, “I love you.” And we meant it.
