Hail Mary Beats Tigers

It's going from bad to worse for the Tigers. Earlier in the week, Tommy West said his team has found ways to LOSE instead of ways to WIN. Saturday's 26-23 to Arkansas Stae was the epitome of that.

The Indians got off to a fast start, leading 17-6 ASU at the half. But the Tigers rallied in the 3rd quarter, Martin Hankins hit THE DUKE, Duke Calhoun over the middle and he's gone for a 49 yard touchdown. Then it was showtime...Hankins threw to RYAN SCOTT who heaved it for Joe Doss and it was right on the money. The Tigers took the lead 23-20.

But with 6 seconds left now and Memphis still up 3, ASU quarterback Cory Leonard threw a Hail Mary, and it went right into the hands of PATRICK HIGGINS with 5 Tiger jerseys around him.

The Indians beat the Tigers for the first time in 17 years. Even worse, defensive back Rod Smith broke the C-5 vetrabrae in his neck and is out for the season.
