ASU Football: Defense impresses in Tuesday practice

The defense won 11-on-11

NCAA Football: Arizona State at Oregon State Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona State Sun Devils were back on the practice field Tuesday afternoon for their ninth bowl practice leading up to their matchup with N.C. State in the Sun Bowl. Not much changed in terms of who was out there, but there was some chicanery when it came to the jerseys. Khayland Thomas and Chase Lucas switched it up, as did Kalen Ballage and Jalen Harvey.
