We continue our best teams from ASU ever this summer with our next matchup. No. 9 1998 Baseball beat No. 8 2006-07 WBB in our last matchup. Now it’s No. 4 1975-76 Football vs. No. 5 1995 Women’s Golf
Here’s the current bracket:

Record: 12-0, WAC Champion, Fiesta Bowl Champion
Head coach: Frank Kush

The rundown: A team that can go undefeated in a season, especially when it comes to football, should be recognized as one of the greatest of all time, if not THE greatest team of all time. The 1975-1976 Arizona State Sun Devils finished with a 12-0 record with the help of Frank Kush as their head coach. Notable players also included Linebacker Bob Breunig who would go on to have a stellar career in the NFL, get inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, and win a Super bowl Championship with the Dallas Cowboys. This team stands as the highest ranked Arizona State Football squad in school history. The Sun Devils would then go on to win the Western Athletic Conference, and defeat Nebraska in the Fiesta Bowl. Arizona State edged past with a final score of 17-14.
