LAS VEGAS (AP) — Fresno State finds itself in the Las Vegas Bowl as the champion of the Mountain West Conference in coach Jeff Tedford's second season, less than two years removed from a 1-11 record.
Arizona State, in its first season under coach Herm Edwards, hopes to use its trip to the postseason as a launching pad to similar success.
The Sun Devils and No. 19 Bulldogs each find themselves on the ascent heading into their Las Vegas Bowl matchup on Saturday.
Las Vegas Bowl: Arizona State (7-5) vs. No. 19 Fresno State (11-2), Dec. 15, 3:30 p.m. EST (ABC)
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State receiver N'Keal Harry will skip the Las Vegas Bowl to prepare for the NFL draft.
Sun Devils coach Herm Edwards issued a statement Monday saying the decision was made after Harry met with the coaching and administrative staffs.
Harry announced last month he is skipping his senior season to enter the draft, where he's expected to be a first-round draft pick.
Arizona State (7-5, Pac-12) vs Fresno State (11-2, Mountain West), Dec. 15, 3:30 p.m. EST
LOCATION: Las Vegas
Arizona State: RB Eno Benjamin, 1,524 yards rushing, 15 touchdowns.
Fresno State: QB Marcus McMaryion, 3,453 yards passing, 25 touchdowns.
Arizona State: The Sun Devils went 7-5 under first-year coach Herm Edwards. Arizona State won four of its last five games, including a wild 41-40 victory over rival Arizona.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State receiver N'Keal Harry will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.
Harry made the announcement Monday with coach Herm Edwards at his side.

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State's first season under coach Herm Edwards has been a solid one. The Sun Devils beat some good teams, lost some close games and are bowl eligible.
Arizona has had a similar first season under Kevin Sumlin, except for bowl eligibility.
The Wildcats need a win on Saturday to become bowl eligible, adding a level of intensity in an already-heated rivalry.
Here are some things to watch this week in the Pac-12 Conference:
Arizona State heads to Oregon this weekend needing a win to stay alive in the Pac-12 South.
If the Sun Devils (6-4, 4-3 Pac-12) can take care of the Ducks, then win at rival Arizona in the regular-season finale, the team will go to the league championship game. Or, they could seal a trip a week early if they win at Oregon, combined with a Utah loss at Colorado and an Arizona loss at Washington State.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State quarterback Manny Wilkins emerged from an emotional Saturday with a victory that keeps his team in great shape in the crowded Pac-12 South.
The three-year starter, in his final home game, ran for two touchdowns and threw for another and the Sun Devils held off UCLA 31-28.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — After consecutive wins over USC and Utah, Arizona State finds itself in the thick of the Pac-12 South race. The Sun Devils need a victory over UCLA on Saturday to stay there.
Arizona State (5-4, 3-3) would win the Pac-12 South title by beating UCLA, Oregon and Arizona in its final three games of the season.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — That 0-2 start to the Pac-12 season seems like ancient history to Utah now.
The No. 16 Utes (6-2, 4-2 Pac-12) have won four straight, topping 40 points in each of the wins, and sit alone atop the Pac-12 South heading in to Saturday's game at Arizona State.
"They have got a senior-laden defense with a lot of experience over there," Sun Devils coach Herm Edwards said. "They don't give up a lot of points, averaging about 16 points a game. They have done a nice job up there."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The recent history between Arizona State and Southern California has been light on competitive games, with only one of the past seven games decided by fewer than 21 points.
That could change when the Sun Devils and Trojans meet Saturday as new Arizona State coach Herm Edwards has shown a preference for one-possession games.
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Besmirch the unblemished Buffaloes all you want, 21st-ranked Colorado proved it belongs in the rankings with a 28-21 win over Arizona State on Saturday.
Knocked for a weak schedule with their opponents a cumulative 1-16 entering the weekend, the Buffaloes (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12) delivered big on both sides of the ball.
Here are some things to watch in Week 6 of the Pac-12 Conference football season:
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Eno Benjamin rushed for a school record 312 yards on 30 carries and scored four touchdowns as Arizona State beat Oregon State 52-24 on Saturday night, giving coach Herm Edwards his first Pac-12 victory.
Benjamin, a sophomore from Wylie, Texas, scored on runs of 44, 47 and 10 yards and caught an 8-yard touchdown pass.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State coach Herm Edwards is pointing to Oregon State's offense as a reason the Sun Devils cannot afford to overlook the Beavers when they meet Saturday night.
"There's a team when you watch them on tape they play in a lot of high-scoring games, believe it or not," Edwards said. "They have actually scored 128 points thus far in four games."
It's Oregon State's defense that helps make Arizona State (2-2, 0-1 Pac-12) such a big favorite.
SEATTLE (AP) — Herm Edwards arrived back on the Arizona State campus sometime around 3:30 a.m. last Sunday. Rather than going home and not sleeping, Edwards immediately went to work at finding the reasons behind the Sun Devils' first loss of the season.
It was a quick assessment knowing the Sun Devils travel to No. 10 Washington in their Pac-12 Conference opener on Saturday night.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego State made a statement with another win against Arizona State, even if it took until the final play to seal the 28-21 upset of the No. 23 Sun Devils.
Junior Ryan Agnew threw his first career touchdown pass to cap an impressive drive to tie the game just before halftime, Juwan Washington rushed for 138 yards and one score and San Diego State's defense came up huge as the Aztecs survived a crazy ending Saturday night.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego State coach Rocky Long was driving to work earlier this week when he heard on the radio that the NFL's Jets knew all the Detroit Lions' signals, resulting in a 48-17 victory for New York.
No. 23 Arizona State (2-0) at San Diego State (1-1), 10:30 p.m. ET (CBS Sports Network).
Arizona was supposed to be the team in the Grand Canyon State that would have the easiest time transitioning to a new coach. Kevin Sumlin was taking over a program that had a Heisman Trophy front-runner, an explosive offense and the potential to be better on defense.
But while No. 23 Arizona State has won its first two games under Herm Edwards, Arizona is 0-2 under Sumlin and facing a litany of issues.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The knock on Herm Edwards' hiring at Arizona State was his time away from the game. Edwards had not coached since being fired by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008 and spent eight years at ESPN, so the thinking was that there was no way he could be successful as a college coach.
Wrong. Edwards may not have been on the sideline, but he was studying the game, even coaching it — at least in his mind — in the television studio.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Herm Edwards had a larger-than-life TV personality with ESPN, shouting out opinions multiple times a day. While coaching the NFL's New York Jets, he had the "You play to win the game!" rant that people still bring up today.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State kicked off the Herm Edwards era with a blowout of UTSA. Beating a school from a smaller conference could be expected.
Rallying from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter against the nation's No. 15 team? Now that's a statement.
Brandon Ruiz kicked a 28-yard field goal as time expired and the Sun Devils notched a marquee win early in Edwards' tenure, knocking off No. 15 Michigan State 16-13 on Saturday night.
No. 15 Michigan State (1-0) at Arizona State (1-0), 10:45 p.m. ET (ESPN).
Line: Michigan State by 6½.
Series record: Tied 1-1.
WHAT'S AT STAKE?
Michigan State is looking to bounce back from a shaky opener in what should be a tough road game. The Spartans trailed Utah State at home in the fourth quarter before scoring late in the 38-31 victory. Arizona State rolled over UTSA 49-7 in its first game under coach Herm Edwards.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — The hype began when Herm Edwards interviewed for the job at Arizona State. It ratcheted it up when he was officially hired and continued through the offseason, into preseason camp.
Everyone wondered how the former NFL coach would fare in the unfamiliar world of college football after eight years in a television studio.
Would the Sun Devils' outside-the-box move be a stroke of genius or explode in their faces?
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Herm Edwards was a big winner in his return to the sidelines as head coach at Arizona State.
And he wasn't at all satisfied.
Manny Wilkins threw for four touchdowns, two to N'Keal Harry, and Arizona State routed UTSA 49-7 on Saturday night.
"It was sloppy," Edwards said. "... I didn't like I what I was watching a lot of times. The big plays are one thing but you play against good football teams you want to have sustained drives."
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Herm Edwards does not want this to be all about him, but for now anyway, any talk about Arizona State football begins and ends with the affable new coach.
Edwards left a seat in the ESPN studio to return to the coaching sidelines for the first time since he was fired by the Kansas City Chiefs in 2008. He hasn't coached in college since he was defensive backs coach at San Jose State in 1989.
