Arizona State’s Arik Armstead breaks the sack record in ’77
Arizona State running back Arik Arrington broke the all-time sack record last night, breaking the all time record of 49 by the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Arrington had previously set the previous record with 48 sacks in ’74.
The game between the two teams was decided by a touchdown, with Arrington completing all 18 passes for 194 yards.
Arndt, a sophomore, was named the Big Ten’s Defensive Player of the Year last season.
He became just the second player in the history of the Pac-12 Conference to break the record.
The other is Oregon State’s Eric Reid.
Arrington was one of three Pac-11 players named to the All-Pac-12 first team.
The others were USC’s Michael Brockers, Oregon’s Jordan Jenkins and Washington State’s Trent Edwards.
The Huskers are coming off their most impressive season since 2008.
They finished 5-7, with a 1-7 record in conference play.
They also dropped four games against Pac-10 opponents.
The Huskers will play their second game in as many weeks, against UCLA on Saturday.
