Richard dives across goal for 33 yard td reception
TEMPE, ARIZONA (September 18, 2015) Arizona State University Sun Devil’s running back Demario Richard rushed for 104 yards and flew past defenders for 151 yards receiving while scoring two touchdowns in a 34-10 victory over the New Mexico Lobos on Friday, September 18 at Frank Kush Stadium.

Richard, a sophomore from Palmdale, CA had a record performance that included a 93 yard touchdown reception, the third longest touchdown pass in Devil history. His 151 yards in receptions is the most from a running back in the history for Devils' football.
For the second week in a row, a visiting non-conference team has created havoc in the middle of the Devils' defense carving up long runs and scoring touchdowns. The Lobos were able rack up 15 first downs, 184 yards rushing, and held the ball for a total of 36:21.

Coach Todd Graham leads his Devils to another win
In the post-game press conference, Coach Todd Graham was asked if he was concerned about the performance his defense is having this year against the run. His response was a very firm “I guarantee our guys are going to be ready for next week”.  He went on to say “I feel good about where my team is at”.

The Lobos will be traveling next week to play the Wyoming Cowboys on Saturday, September 26 at 1:08 pm MST. The game can be seen on television channel ROOT.

The Devils host PAC-12 Conference rivals University of Southern California Trojans on Saturday, September 26, 2015.  This is the first conference game time of the season for the Devils. The game time has not been announced and will be covered on PAC-12 Networks.
