ASU turns focus toward debate

While ASU officials were busy in Miami getting tips on running a presidential debate, ASU students packed the Memorial Union to watch two candidates face off for the first time.

He may be a candidate to win the Heisman Trophy as well as be one of the top prospect's in the next NFL draft, but few people besides hardcore ASU fans had heard Walter's name before the last time he took to the field in Eugene, Ore.
