From the Sun Belt Conference
The Red Wolves host Memphis this week in their home opener. ASU has played Memphis more than any other opponent in school history, and Saturday's game will mark the 57th meeting all-time between the two schools since 1914. Memphis leads the all-time series 28-22-5, but ASU picked up a 47-3 victory over the Tigers last season in Jonesboro.
A-State has won its last seven home openers at ASU Stadium, dating back to the 2005 campaign. The Red Wolves stand 27-11 all-time in home openers at AUS and are also 14-6 in such games since moving Division I-A (FBS) in 1992. ASU has posted an actual on-field winning record at ASU Stadium the last six seasons dating back to 2005, holding a 24-7 record over that span.
Senior quarterback Ryan Aplin set new school records for career total offense (9,075 yards) and passing yards (7,720) during the Red Wolves' game against No. 5 Oregon. Aplin also became just the third player in Sun Belt Conference history to record over 9,000 yards of total offense.
Senior wide receiver Josh Jarboe caught a career-high 13 passes against the Ducks, which also tied the school record for a single game.
Senior linebacker Nathan Herrold recorded a team-high 11 tackles versus Oregon, tying the second most of his career and marking the fourth time he's posted double-digit stops.
