August 27, 2014

Countdown to the 2014 Sun Devil football season kicks off at ASU's official tailgate Devils on Mill block party. Devils on Mill welcomes all fans to join the ASU community in showing Sun Devil spirit and pride before the first ASU Football home game opener.

The official ASU tailgate block party takes place before each home game on Sixth Street and Mill Avenue, and includes live entertainment, food, carnival rides and games for all ages.

A student-led and coordinated event, Devils on Mill is in its third year and has become the place to be three hours before ASU home games.

The tailgate festivities on Mill are free and open to the public, and begin at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28. The game against Weber State at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe begins at 7:30 p.m., Arizona time.

"We are so excited to invite the community to join us at the Devils on Mill – game day starts here," said Lindsay Heffron, Game Day director of the Student Programming and Activities Board. "This Sun Devil tradition is like no other event, and this year it will be bigger and better and will include more vendors, activities and entertainment."

To top off the excitement to the season opener, students will have an opportunity to win a football helmet signed by ASU Head Football Coach Todd Graham.

This family-friendly event will also include a Little Devils Zone, a new addition to the event, sponsored by the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. This new tradition will include an area for young future Sun Devils to participate in activities, games and face painting, and will also feature a photo booth.

The reigning Pac-12 South champions will open the 2014 season this Thursday, Aug. 28, against Weber State at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, at 7:30 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. To learn more about Devils on Mill, visit
