Rams football falls in season finale
Season marked by big wins, tough losses
ASU's football season is now over after the Rams fell to the Tarleton State Texans in a 54-37 offensive battle to end their season with a 5-6 overall record and a 4-4 conference record.
Redshirt freshman Kyle Washington got his first career start and threw for 245 yards, three touchdowns and only one interception, but the Rams couldn't keep up with Tarleton State's productive offense.
Tarleton State's senior quarterback Jake Fenske shredded the Rams defense for 434 passing yards and three touchdowns with only one interception.
The Texans running attack consisted of six runners that combined for 146 total rushing yards and three touchdowns on 41 carries
The Rams' six rushers gained a total of 139 yards and two touchdowns on a total of 33 attempts.
The Rams sacked Fenske once and junior Courtney Moore picked off a pass, but ASU's defense gave up 580 total yards on defense.
The Rams finish their season with the same record as last year, but their 4-4 conference record is two wins better than their 2-6 conference record from 2011.
The Rams had numerous highlights over the season including defeating Abilene Christian University's Wildcats on their farewell tour of the Lone Star Conference.
The Rams hosted the Wildcats on ASU's Family day and upset ACU 28-23 to give a proper send off to their longtime rival.
