Devils bound for Insight Bowl

ASU placekicker Jesse Ainsworth, No. 20, kicks the game-winning field goal at Sun Devil Stadium Friday against UA.

The ASU football team will be staying home for the holidays, and the team couldn't be happier about it.

ASU rallied from a 15-point second-half deficit to defeat UA 23-20 Friday afternoon at Sun Devil Stadium, earning the Sun Devils a berth in the Insight Bowl at Chase Field on Dec. 27 against Rutgers.

It marks the first time in ASU coach Dirk Koetter's tenure that his teams have gone to back-to-back bowls.

Profs honored for HIV research

The Biodesign Institute was recently honored by Gov. Janet Napolitano's office for making strides toward ending the global spread of HIV.

The Biodesign Institute's Center of Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology received the Innovator of the Year Award for Academia on Nov. 15 in honor of research being done by professors Tsafrir Mor and Charles Arntzen.

Mor and Arntzen are developing a vaccine and medications that could potentially block HIV from entering the body, and subsequently, causing AIDS.

Football: Defense comes through for Sun Devils

Saying the ASU defense had been unreliable this year would be an understatement.

But Saturday, it stepped up with the season and territorial bragging rights on the line.

The Sun Devils entered the contest against rival UA ranked 115th out of 117 Division I schools in total defense, yielding an average of 472 yards per game. But after a shaky start, the defense regrouped in the second half and allowed only a field goal, helping to turn a 15-point third quarter deficit into a 23-20 victory.

Football: Injuries doom Wildcats

The UA Wildcats had the Sun Devils right where they wanted them for most of Friday's rivalry game at ASU.

But after losing several key players to injury late in the game, the Wildcats also lost their grip on the Territorial Cup, falling 23-20.

Pins & Needles

On the cover
When psychology senior Jaclyn Trecokas was a freshman in college, drinking a glass of milk was enough to leave her body writhing in pain. But today she says she can eat or drink whatever she wants thanks to acupuncture, an ancient healing method. And she's not alone.

According to a 2002 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, acupuncture has become one of the leading forms of alternative healing in the United States helping to solve ailments ranging from bone injuries to drug addiction. While needling patients for treatment is a far cry from conventional Western medical practice, a growing interest by the American public in alternative healing has led them to discover a different path to better health.

Acupuncture: How does it work?

Acupuncture is more than just sticking needles into random parts of the body -- there's actually a science behind it. According to Jo Condra, a licensed acupuncturist at Essential Chiropractic Acupuncture and Massage Therapy in Scottsdale, the ancient medicine treats patients through treating their energy, or "qi."

Fashion: Heart of Brass

Tempe fashionistas may still find themselves traveling to hip locations in Scottsdale in search of the newest trends, but their search for style no longer needs to be a day trip.
