ASU Football news and notes

Posted:

From the Sun Belt Conference

Arkansas State's 611 yards of total offense against Memphis was the seventh-highest in school history and the most since ASU put up 601 yards against Lamar in 1984.

ASU's 169 yards allowed in the game was the fewest since 2004. The ASU defense did not allow Memphis inside the 20 yard line the entire game and didn't allow the Tigers to cross midfield in the second half. 10 players recorded tackles behind the line of scrimmage for ASU, with five players recording sacks.

Quarterbacks Ryan Aplin and Andre Smith combined to complete 29-of-33 passes for 375 yards and four touchdowns against the Tigers. Aplin completed 19-of-21 passes for a 90.5% completion rate, which ranks second all-time at ASU, and Smith came into the game in the second half and completed 10-of-12 for 83.3%, which ranks as fifth-best in ASU history.

The crowd of 29,872 was the second largest crowd in ASU Stadium history.

Ryan Aplin threw his 25th, 26th and 27th touchdown passes of his career to move him into fourth place on the all-time ASU touchdown pass list. Aplin's 71-yard touchdown pass to Josh Jarboe was the longest pass of Aplin's career. It is the longest since 2007 when David Johnson had an 84-yard reception from Corey Leonard.

Josh Jarboe's 162 yards receiving ranks 10th all-time in school history for a single game. The last time an ASU receiver had more than 150 yards occurred in in 2000 when Robert Kilow gained 152 yards.

Frankie Jackson surpassed 100 yards rushing for the first time in his career. The last time an ASU running back had over 100 yards was in 2010 when Derek Lawson surpassed the mark against Middle Tennessee.

Bobby Zalud's 56-yard field tied for the third longest field goal in school history. Joe Duren kicked a 56-yard field goal against McNeese State in 1974.
