ASU Football: Bo Graham resigns as running backs coach - The son of head coach Todd Graham resigned from his post on Monday after three years in Tempe. The timing of the decision is curious, to say the least, but the team has moved on. Graduate assistant Josh Martin was hired to the position before the day was over.

Outside of the Pac-12, Texas A&M picked its starting quarterback yesterday. Scottsdale Ariz., native Kyle Allen got the nod, and the sophomore will make his first start of 2015 against the Sun Devils.
