Arizona State looking to play Off-Campus?

According to Arizona Republic reporter Jeff Metcalfe, Arizona State is looking into at moving part of or their entire 2014 schedule to the new Mesa AZ facility being built for the Chicago Cubs which approached the school with the idea.

Lisa Love recently discussed the possible move by sending out an email to season ticket holders which can be read below. Continue reading
