Joe Moore Award announcement - ASU a semi-finalist for the nation's best college O-line. The announcement got our record wrong (I guess they thought Darby's foot was inbounds.), but the rest sounds good. Just more evidence that technique and schemes have improved. This O-line has had my vote since the first game.

Arizona State

The Sun Devils have only allowed 15 sacks this season, which is 2nd in the PAC 12 and T-24th in the FBS.

Arizona State’s O-line has paved the way for RB Eno Benjamin to gain 1,444 rushing yards this year, just 121 yards shy of the school record of 1,565 (Woody Glenn, 1972).

Benjamin is currently 4th nationally with 131 yards per game and T-12th in PAC-12 with 12 rushing touchdowns.

What the committee is saying: “Scrappy unit. C moves very well in space when he’s pulling. Their hands are where they are supposed to be. They all reset their hands in pass pro well, if they miss. RT is huge. They work to finish. You can see the effort.”

Offensive line coach: Dave Christensen

Head coach: Herm Edwards
