This year is the 40th anniversary of ASU's only undefeated football season. While the Sun Devils had many memorable seasons during the 1970s, it was in 1975 that the team went 12-0, leading to a No. 2 ranking in the national polls and an upset victory over Nebraska in the Fiesta Bowl.
In this episode of The Alumni Experience podcast, host Liz Massey, managing editor of the Alumni Association, speaks to members of the 1975 Sun Devil team to hear their take on what forces came together to create the university’s only “perfect season.”
Interviewees include center and team co-captain Jim Heilig, kicker Dan Kush, and middle linebacker Mike Seivert. The story is also peppered with audio excerpts from a 1976 promotional film made by ASU to recap the victorious 1975 season.
